Melbourne Jazz breaks box office record

In its 16th year, the Melbourne International Jazz Festival broke its own attendance record set in 2012, with more than half of the events playing to full houses.

In a triumph for its artistic director Michael Tortoni's programming, over 40,000 people went to nearly 100 events over 10 days, with 80 international and 400 Australian artists performing and collaborating at 19 different venues across Melbourne. The finale by US vocalist Cassandra Wilson got a standing ovation.
