Jazz week, March 26

March 27, 2016

As explained last week, jazz diary here is now taking the form of a link, in celebration of the fact the Tony Benjamin‘s regular preview is now back on Bristol247’s site. Read his latest here.

I didn’t actually make it to hear anything this week, in the wake of the jazz festival. If I was in town next weekend, I’d be making a point of going to hear Kit Downes, as Tony suggests. Also tempted by an out of towner the night before, when Mike Westbrook‘s brilliant new big band play a show in Taunton on Friday night (April 1st at 7.30 at the Brewhouse Theatre). Here’s my review of their date in Bristol last summer. I see that piece urged people to subscribe to the forthcoming CD. I wasn’t disappointed when it came out, and that’s reviewed here. If it was up to me, an astonishing outfit like this would feature in our own jazz festival, but until that happens any chance to catch them nearby is not to be missed.
