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
