Yes, it starts today, Friday the 13th. Ten days of “extravagance” (Daily Telegraph).
Look down on the left for our nine previews, for our four links to the national newspaper coverage, and for a press release from Boris Johnson yesterday about
“Europe’s jazz capital.”
And look up at the world-class Liam Noble, looking down. His Brubeck project is on at the Barbican freestage tomorrow at 6pm.
“Noble has a unique way of completely inhabiting a tune, of communicating from deep inside it, of re-inventing its twists and turns from within it.” (LondonJazz)

The London Jazz Festival is a great event for 10 days and brings in some incredible stuff. I can't bear the choices that have to be made. But we have to remember that places like the Vortex, 606 and Pizza Express have 365 day jazz festivals in London!
I caught part of Liam Noble's set. I found a solo rendering of In Your Own Sweet Way completely mesmerising.
