You will notice a change. LondonJazz News has the same address and, we hope, the same ethos, but has moved template. The change has been implemented with valuable help from Richard Bateman and Tom McAdam, to whom thanks are due. We hope you like what you see, but welcome constructive feedback. And talking of feedback, we were recently pleased to receive this plaudit from someone we respect a lot:
“I’ve always thought of LondonJazz News as the model of what a music website should be. It has all the right information without any of the usual guff. What I most look forward to are the Wednesday Morning Headlines and its ‘Read Elsewhere’ links, a wonderful weekly array of jokes, thoughts and information which I would never otherwise see and which have been a vital research resource in writing our history of live music in Britain. (Volume 2 is just out!) – Simon Frith, Emeritus Professor of Music, University of Edinburgh and Chair of Judges of the Mercury Prize (1992-2016)
Thanks to all our contributors and readers for your support and loyalty over ten years.
From the team,
Sebastian Scotney, Peter Bacon, Romy Summers, Rob Edgar, and Catherine Ford
