Main and oldest Portuguese jazz club, located in Lisbon.
The Hot Club de Portugal was founded in 1948 by Luis Villas-Boas (regarded as the father of jazz in Portugal), following an homonimous radio programme started in November 1945.
Since then the Hot Club has been the major jazz club in Portugal, hosting major jam-sessions and musicians such as Count Basie, Bill Coleman, Dexter Gordon, Benny Golson, Lee Konitz, Freddie Hubbard, Max Roach and Pat Metheny.
