JAZZ MANN FEATURES
It's good to see a “cutting edge” festival returning to Birmingham again, especially one that is so supportive of young, up and coming musicians.
Guest contributor Trevor Bannister on a "a fascinating day spent at a church near Shepperton, where producer Andy Cleyndert was recording Scott Willcox's ten-piece big band for his Trio label".
