Annual Lisbon jazz adventure, Jazz em Agosto, celebrates its 35th edition this year with a special programme, running between 27 July to 5 August, dedicated to the wonderfully esoteric soundworlds of New York composer, saxophonist and Tzadik label boss John Zorn. This will be the first time in Jazz em Agosto's history that the event will be devoted to the work of a single musician, celebrating this extraordinary artist whose eclectic and critically acclaimed output has left such an indelible mark on the music of our time.

The 18 concerts and five films featured at the host venue at Gulbenkian Foundation will capture the essence of Zorn's unique sonic universe, showcasing his own idiosyncratic material with performances from several of his own numerous and diverse projects, as well as by many of his regular collaborators and artists who continue to divine inspiration from his infectious and innovative creativity.

Kicking off with a special opening-night trio comprising of Zorn, Thurston Moore and Milford Graves, other highlights throughout the 10 days include showcases from Craig Taborn, the Mary Halvorson Quartet, John Zorn's MasadaJulian Lage, the John Medeski TrioIkue MoriKris Davis Quartet and Secret Chiefs 3.
