1965 July 24-25: Antibes (FR) 6th Jazz á Juan Festival
The International Jazz Festival in Antibes Juan-les-Pins (France) is the oldest running jazz festival in Europe. The first "Jazz à Juan", created to pay tribute to the famous adopted Antibian, Sidney Bechet, was held in 1960.
From the 1920's Antibes Juan-les-Pins was the anchor point in Europe for the new generation of citizens from free America and the meeting place for intellectuals and modernists, following the example of Scott & Zelda Fitzgerald, Ernest Hemingway etc. With them came jazz and a new style of living. From then on, the "joie de vivre" city, so precious to Picasso, also became the adopted homeland of Sidney Bechet, as a tribute to which he wrote the jazz piece "In the streets of Antibes".
