All change at thejazzbreakfast as the head chef migrates

empty-kitchenWelcome to 2017 and to a farewell of sorts – not so much a goodbye as an au revoir. I’ll be keeping this site going as an occasional pop-up for personal reflections and the odd jazz review (as well as its substantial archive), but mainly I’m going to be exploring the Midlands’ jazz scene and other broader jazz topics as the Editor-At-Large for LondonJazz News.

After ten years of solid jazz ‘n’ breakfast dedication, it’s a chance to give the ever-burgeoning Birmingham scene a wider audience than I could ever achieve in this little kitchen. It’s also an opportunity to refresh and re-inspire my own rather tired tastebuds within a new outlet, and get involved in new projects to develop LondonJazz News.

I’m also hoping to continue contributing to the print media of Jazzwise magazine and The Birmingham Post for as long as they’ll have me.

So, thanks for reading – I really appreciate it. And don’t go away completely! Check in here from time to time but do also follow LondonJazz News for jazz news not just from London and the wider world, but now from the West Midlands too.
