April is Jazz Appreciation Month, and to celebrate, SiriusXM and Jazz at Lincoln Center are giving you a chance to win a trip for two to Vitoria, Spain for the Vitoria-Gasteiz Jazz Festival, July 10-16, 2011!

One of the world’s premier jazz celebrations located in the historic Basque region of northern Spain, the Vitoria-Gasteiz Jazz Festival is celebrating its 35th year…and we want to give you and a guest the chance to be there in person to see an incredible lineup of legendary musicians. Performers scheduled to appear at this year’s Festival include Herbie Hancock, Wayne Shorter & Marcus Miller; Jamie Cullum, Trombone Shorty, Ruben Blades, Nigel Kennedy and many more.

Inspired in part by the inter-cultural collaborations at the Vitoria-Gasteiz Jazz Festival, Wynton Marsalis, the Artistic Director of Jazz at Lincoln Center, recently composed the Vitoria Suite. This extended work uses the impulse of the blues as a foundation to jointly explore the music of two worlds and two cultures: the jazz and blues of North America and the indigenous music of the Basque region and flamenco of Spain. Performed by the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra with Wynton Marsalis and special guests Chano Dominguez and legendary flamenco guitarist Paco de Lucia, Vitoria Suite was released on CD last year to wide acclaim and was recently performed in concert by Wynton and the JLCO. SiriusXM’s Real Jazz channel will present an encore broadcast of this memorable performance during its special Jazz Appreciation Month programming in April.

One lucky winner will receive round-trip airfare for two to Vitoria, Spain, ground transportation to and from the airport, hotel accommodations for seven nights (including breakfast), two VIP passes for the 2011 Vitoria-Gasteiz Jazz Festival, and a copy of the Vitoria Suite CD (two-disc set plus bonus “Making Of“ DVD) signed by Wynton Marsalis.

*Winner must be a US citizen at least 21 years of age and able to travel to Spain July 10-17, 2011.
