LondonJazz is a new blogsite from writer and musician Sebastian Scotney which covers all the great jazz happening in London that you might not easily hear about in the more obvious places.
There are lists of Recommended Gigs, loads of links to the listings on London venues’ sites, a music player which was putting out some hot Dave Holland stuff when I logged on, longer interviews and a little section of humorous pieces. One of the links there is to the puredesmond site which includes the wonderful sayings of saxophonist Paul Desmond. Here’s gem: “I tried practising for a few weeks and ended up playing too fast.”
So, if you are planning a trip to the Big Smoke, check out LondonJazz first.
