Curacao Jazz Festival…
Dig Curacao Jazz?

The Curacao Jazz Festival is a must visit for Curacao-Visitors. Curacao is all about ‘’enjoying life’’. And Jazz, in particular smooth jazz they say is not a music genre but a lifestyle that appeals to an audience that enjoys the finer things in life.

To me Curacao and Jazz are synonyms
To me Jazz is more than Music for good Cocktails

If you're still reading, it might be cause you're just as Jazz-Fanatic as me. The sound of Jazz really takes me to a higher plane. And if you're plagued by this abnormality, you might want to know where to find Jazz on Curacao.

The 2014 CNSJ will be the 5th edition of this Curacao Jazz Festival and they all have been a total success. Tickets are mostly sold out months before the Festival. The organization behind this is doing a darn good job.  If you’re visiting in august 2014, make sure to buy your CNSJ tickets early.

NOTE: The 2014 Curacao North Sea Jazz Festival is planned on 29 & 30 of August @ The World Trade Center.

For The Jazz-Fanatics

For the Jazz-Fanatics like me, longing for a mind-blowing yet uncrowded private jazz euphoria….

Try this Simplest Thing: go for a ride, at night or during the day, pull down your car windows, let the soft caress of the Caribbean breeze in, switch your radio station to Clazz FM 95.1 and just drive on.

First time I did this, the song “Let's take a ride” by Norman Brown was on... I felt freedom, what it meant to be the sole driver of my own life. Inhaling the Caribbean air, absorbing this little paradise named Curacao. No work, no obligations or whatsoever. Just you - marvelous Jazz and a chill Caribbean Breeze embracing your skin with such tenderness. You'll be wishing you could have that moment forever.
