This year's Warsaw Summer Jazz Days festival, loved by fans in Poland and around Europe, starts June 26, boasting a lineup of international stars including the Pat Metheny Trio, Chick Corea's Return to Forever, Bobby McFerrin, and the Terence Blanchard Octet. The festival is organized by Polish jazz aficionado Mariusz Adamiak.

American jazz guitarist Pat Metheny will perform at Warsaw's Kongresowa Hall July 3. While in Poland, Metheny will also appear in Zabrze July 2.

July 4 will see Chick Corea and his Return to Forever project at the Kongresowa Hall. In addition to Corea, the concert will feature Stanley Clarke, Al Di Meola, and Lenny White.

Bobby McFerrin, an artist well known to regular festival audiences, will this year perform together with Polish jazz stars including vocalist Anna Maria Jopek and pianist Leszek Mo¿d¿er.

This year's festival will also include performances by the great jazz sax player Branford Marsalis and Charlie Haden, an American double-bass player known for his long-term collaboration with saxophonist Ornette Coleman.

As in previous years, besides the main part of the festival-which will feature ticketed concerts by some of the world's greatest jazz musicians-special jazz evenings will be held for free. They will be dedicated to various European countries, including Ukraine, Slovakia, Greece, Austria, and Poland.
