Though we might have to wait until April for the full line up, The Halifax Jazz Festival (July 8-12) sure knows how to tease.

tUnE-yArDs follow it up on Thursday, July 9 with their beautiful and bizarre sounds.

Juan de Marcos and The Afro Cuban Allstars perform Friday, July 10 with Adonis Puentes & the Voice of Cuba Orchestra featuring Pancho Amat.

Kenny Werner rounds out the festival with two concerts at the Peggy Corkum Music Room on Sunday, July 12.
