There’s a new jazz festival and it happens this weekend in venues around Bedfordshire, from Milton Keynes to Leighton Buzzard. The line-up is strong with a good cross-section of contemporary British jazz both young and middle-aged.

Among the line-up we find saxophonist Jean Toussaint‘s JT4; pianist Kit Downes playing in his trio and also as part of Tricko with cellist Lucy Railton; bassist Arnie Somogyi leading a trio and adding trumpeter Bruce Adams into the mix; saxophonist Tori Freestone and trumpeter Neil Yates both leading trios; and flautist Gareth Lockrane‘s band Grooveyard.

Some events are ticketed, some are free, and the Bedford & Milton Keynes Jazz Festival runs from Friday 27 to Sunday 29 March.
