Jazz Concert

The Chris Byars Quartet from New York City held three jazz concerts in Montenegro: Podgorica, Niksic and Bijelo Polje. Jazz at Lincoln Center (under the direction of Wynton Marsalis) and the U.S. State Department sponsors this program to foster cultural exchange with audiences worldwide.  The musicians also gave master classes in all three cities and were able to play with local musicians.  A 12-year old trumpeter even took part in the concert in Niksic to rave reviews (see photo).  As part of the "The Rhythm Road: American Music Abroad," the Chris Byars also is performing in Slovakia,  Saudi Arabia, Cyprus and Slovenia.  For more information on the jazz quartet, including MP3 links to some of their music, please visit following websites:  and
