Well, for four days, anyway. We get excited over little things in the jazz world, and this is one of them. BBC Music brings the pop-up concept to jazz from this Thursday with the help of Jazz FM and the London Jazz Festival, which starts on Friday and goes right through to Sunday 22 November.
BBC Music Jazz is promising live broadcasts, interviews, profiles, and a countdown of the 50 greatest jazz artists of all time, as chosen by us, BBC’s jazz listeners. There is loads more, including that man from The Fast Show who says “Nice!”, John Thomson, talking about his love of jazz, and even Cerys Matthews flicking through her vinyl jazz collection.
From Thursday at 2pm to midnight on Sunday, BBC Music Jazz will be broadcasting on digital radio, the internet and the BBC iPlayer Radio app.
