After a delightful week in the La Mothe st. Heray area, Deux sevres departement, we headed to the south west of France to visit family and to enjoy one of the largest jazz festivals in Europe in Tillac. A sleepy little village for most of the year, it comes alive with people and music during the first two weeks of August. The central square was tented and live jazz from noon until 5pm every day.
After dark the headliners started at "the big tent". We were fortunate enough to get tickets to see Thelonious Monk Jr.
