The Bristol jazz scene

I’ve got involved with the upcoming Bristol Jazz and Blues Festival as a volunteer (mainly pushing their twitter account) and that got me wondering what makes the jazz scene in the city, as I hear it, so consistently rewarding…

My answer (turns out it’s rather a long one) is up now on the indispensable – even if you’re not in London – LondonJazzNews site. (Thanks Sebastian). I’ll probably post it here as well in a while but that’s the place to read it for now.

Here’s hoping it’s a lead in to a successful first festival, which is also previewed here by Mike Collins. He’ll be reviewing it for LondonJazzNews too.

You can follow festival stuff on twitter (@BristolJazzFest), and we’ll use the hashtag #BristolJazz over the weekend if you want to react to what’s going on.

There’s a Facebook page as well…
