JazzUK devolves listings into Gigs

JazzUK has now morphed into two publications:

1) GIGS is a 16-page monthly (online only) magazine doing nationwide listings.

2) JazzUK is a 32-page bi-monthly magazine, now without the traditional listings content..

The cover of the new issue 106 is of Martin Taylor and Guy Barker, associated with a major feature by John Fordham about the Britten Sinfonia’s “Spirit of Django” Prom on August 31st. There is also a round-up of the UK showcase at the Rochester Jazz Festival. There is also a feature about NYJO, which officially confirms the appointment of Mark Armstrong as Music Director.

Jazz Services and JazzUK have a tie-up with Jazzwise on listings which is clearly changing as it evolves: In June it was stated that “Jazz Services and Jazzwise magazine will be working together on a new UK jazz gig guide.” The current issue of JazzUK has a different formulation of what’s going on:  “We’ve also arranged for Jazzwise magazine to draw on our listings database for their monthly issues”. Good luck to both parties as they embark on this very worthwhile collaboration.
