Madrid – American jazz saxophonist Joe Lovano has been taken to hospital in Spain after injuring his shoulder in a fall, organisers of the Madrid Jazz Festival said Wednesday.

Lovano, 56, considered one of the best saxophonists around today, cancelled a concert he was to have given to open the festival Wednesday night.

He suffered a slight injury to his shoulder in a fall in the northeastern city of Barcelona, the organisers said.

The 4-28 November Madrid Jazz Festival features a 50th anniversary tribute to Miles Davis' Kind of Blue album with the participation of Jimmy Cobb, the only surviving member from the original recording.

Others scheduled to perform are saxophonist Roy Hargrove, pianist Brad Mehldau and singers Madeleine Peyroux and Cassandra Wilson.
