Oxford Jazz Festival – Thurs April 21-Sun 24

The Oxford Jazz Festival programme shows the imaginative team behind it branching out and trying new things. Such as:

-A visit by BBC Radio 3 for a live recording of Jazz Library with Bobby Wellins at North Wall Arts Centre

-The luxury 5-Star Randolph Hotel (above) hosting a luxury 5-star Trio: Norma Winstone, Klaus Gesing and Glauco Venier. Kit Downes’ Sextet will also be there, performing material from the not-yet-released album.

Tim Whitehead will be at that friendly regular venue the Spin

-Concerts in the 1897 Town Hall by Rory Simmons’ Fringe Magnetic and Soweto Kinch.

– New venues: the Jacqueline Du Pre Music Building and the Said Business School

The full programme/booking is here and there is also an OJF Jukebox

  1. Well said, Alissa. I think you should invite Caitlin Moran and Andrew Marr as well, get some good jazz advocates along to take them to gigs, explain to them what it's all about, how to listen, how to get something out of the most exhilarating, beautiful music in the world. They could become jazz's biggest fans, with the right people to guide them.

  2. Well, I've sent the invitation TheJazzBreakfast, we'll see what she says?

    @caitlinmoran 'you should invite Caitlin Moran & Andrew Marr as well…They could become jazz's biggest fans, with the right…guide” Well?
