Heiligenkreuz-in-Lafnitz is near Graz, Austria, close to the Hungarian border where the eastbound train stops between cornfields and forests at a small depot in Mogersdorf. In Heiligenkreuz, a short drive away, the annual Chilli Festival is held in the town’s main hotel/conference centre where most of the musicians stay. Ken Waxman’s review and performance-portraits are on www.jazzword.com. The first block of photos are from Graz, and the festival surroundings are in the second.
