As the last notes floated skyward Sunday evening, organisers of the 37th Copenhagen Jazz Festival could look back on a successful ten-day festival.
In contrast to previous years, sunny skies drew audience members to the free outdoor concerts held in the city's squares.
According to organisers, the best-attended event among the festival's hundreds of performances was the memorial concert for world-famous Danish bassist Niels-Henning Ørsted Petersen. Nearly 10,000 people attended the open-air concert in Kongens Have for Ørsted Petersen, who died in April.
Copenhagen's new Opera house proved to be one of the festival's major stars. The three concerts featured there included Chick Corea, Curtis Stigers, and Yusef Lateef and sold out far in advance of the festival.
