When Lloyd Wright, the eldest son of Frank Lloyd Wright, designed two shells of the Hollywood Bowl for the symphony orchestra, Hugh Hefner was just born. In 1950 the first playboy decided to hold a jazz celebration for his magazine. Since Americans love jazz and nice women, the Playboy Jazz Festival was the winning combination.

This year the Hollywood Bowl, the largest natural amphitheatre in the United States, will be the host for the 31st annual Playboy Jazz festival and will host the biggest names in jazz, from The Neville Brothers and Wayne Shorter to Kenny G and Patty Austin. The visitor will enjoy in mix of styles ranging from standards to world fusion, and spectacular big screens will show every artist up-close-and-personal, from the first minute to the end of the festival. The Hollywood Bowl's five shells saw the names like Sinatra, Pavarotti and The Beatles, and now some 20,000 fans have a chance to listen the living legends of jazz music. Buy the ticket and enjoy excellent jazz.
