After a few weeks in America, we set off for the festival of Antibes, in the South of France. We blew them away. In 1963, Miles Davis was in for a shock: In Antibes, an immense poster of me was stuck up near my hotel. I thought: what a world it is; I don’t get that in New York but here, thousands of people come especially to listen to you and treat you like a brother.

Another family reunion this year in Juan, honouring with pomp one of the greatest trumpet players in the history of jazz, who passed away twenty years ago. All the artists performing on the legendary stage in the pine grove will have a thought for Miles Davis, from Jamie Cullum ( I discovered the festival through recordings of Keith Jarrett and Miles Davis ) to Marcus Miller ( He taught me to be myself ), without forgetting of course those with whom he lived the great adventure Jazz à Juan : Herbie Hancock and Wayne Shorter. And also all those who, at some point during their career, crossed the sunlit path of this blue note mutant. They will all come together again for this festival, an annual celebration.

Because Juan, as Joshua Redman said so well, is « a true festival, not a series of concerts, a real community which meets up each year in a particular place, at a particular time. Everyone is there sharing a same passion, living jazz physically. » On the main stage of course, but also all around, in the streets and during the "afters", where the jazz gains its true dimension : Juan-les-Pins, it’s not just a stage, it’s a legend for me: Juan-les-Pins, it’s what Carnegie Hall is to classical music. Every time I’ve heard Juan mentioned, it’s been the height of greatness of jazz. (John McLaughlin)
