An era is about to come to an end. Jazz in London which was founded by John Jack in 1971, has been run continuously since 1973 by Mary Greig. After forty-three years, Mary has decided that she needs to stop for personal reasons. She will produce two more issues, one at the end of this month for March, and then her final issue as editor, which will be for April.
Her contribution to keeping people informed of what goes on in the London scene has been immeasurable. The wealth of information which she puts into every edition of Jazz in London is vast. She has seen it through from the print-only era to the internet; it has remanined an unrivalled source of reliable information throughout more than four decades. This community can never thank Mary enough for her unstinting and lifelong dedication to publicizing infomation about the London scene. Whatever happens to Jazz in London (and indeed to jazz in London), it will not be the same when she stops.
If people have not yet voted in the Parliamentary Jazz Awards, then a vote for Mary Greig in the Services to Jazz category seems to us like the obvious choice. VOTE HERE BEFORE FEB 18th
