Welcome to The Jazz Mann
Tuesday, August 05, 2008
Welcome to The Jazz Mann – my new website covering the latest jazz news and reviews.
I‘ve have been a Jazz fan for as long as I can remember, written for numerous magazines and websites but finally getting my own site together is such a tremendous feeling.
I would like to thank all the labels and artists who have sent me CDs so far… it has been a massive help and has enabled me to launch the site with such a large number of reviews.
But content is everything, so please keep them coming… if you are a label or an artist please send in your CDs for review. I will endeavour to listen to as many as possible and publish my review on the site. Check out the Contact section for details about where to send your CDs.
Not only will I be reviewing the latest Jazz albums and singles but I will also be around the country checking out as many gigs as I can.
My first assignment for the new site is the Brecon Jazz Festival. I’ll be there from the 8th – 10th August. I hope to see you there.
My regards to you all,
