We want more! We want more!

This was the refrain of the crowd at the Cape Town International Jazz  Festival free concert on Wednesday 3 April, 2013.

Held annually on the chic Greenmarket Square, the free concert serves as a precursor for the highly anticipated Cape Town International Jazz Festival at the Cape Town International Convention Centre, to be held this year on Friday 5 and Saturday 6 April.

A pleasing change from the bustling curio stalls to be found there during the day, Greenmarket Square was brimming with food stands, dancers and, of course, jazz lovers.

Fanatics were treated to sets by some of the festival’s headliners, including local musos Brand New Heavies, Jimmy Nevis, and Jimmy Dludlu.
