The 2016 Melbourne International Jazz Festival (MIJF) is set to warm up the city in midwinter with an incredible program featuring some of the world's most important and iconic jazz artists, genre bending innovators, virtuosic instrumentalists and soulful singers.

Shining a light on some extraordinary musical collaborations, the 2016 MIJF program celebrates long established and newly formed connections.

The Festival's Modern Masters program showcases pioneers of the artform such as Pharoah Sanders Quartet alongside Italy's piano virtuoso Stefano Bollani collaborating with Brazil's bandolim master Hamilton de Holanda.

The Explorations in Jazz series showcases musicians at the cutting edge of contemporary improvised music, featuring genre-bending iconoclasts of jazz-rock The Bad Plus, masters of long-form ethereal improvisation Tord Gustavsen Quartet and the world premiere of Nyilipidgi, a landmark event exploring the musical heritage of Australia's first people.
