EFG London Jazz Festival 2020 coming this November.


The EFG London Jazz Festival
Friday 13 - Sunday 22 November 2020

 

Living in Two Worlds
This year EFG London Jazz Festival will be an event that is both live and digital - Living in Two Worlds - and will run from Friday 13 to Sunday 22 November.

 

The unprecedented circumstances of 2020 have meant we have had to rethink how music is experienced to create a Festival that is accessible to a wide audience and transcends borders.

 

We aim to bring together exclusive live concerts, a digital platform that streams live and bespoke content, new commissions, interactive creative engagement projects, rare archive recordings, films, talks, interviews, webinars and a series of broadcasts.
The plan is for this to be a major live and digital event that lives in two worlds at the same time.

We are also thrilled to present our new Festival design, inspired by the multiple sounds and unifying nature of jazz, reaching out to audiences everywhere.

We continue our commitment to the UK jazz scene and its connections to the global arena, showcasing the best of international talent, new work, new collaborations, unique performances, audience interaction, and our collaboration with clubs, communities and other producers.


The programme, details on venues, tickets, and online viewing options will be announced in September.

AuB are the London based quartet masterminded by two young saxophonists, Tom Barford and Alex Hitchcock, musicians who are making huge waves as part of the next generation of virtuosic instrumentalists intent on doing things their way. AuB refers to the meeting of two musical minds: instrumental sounds melded into one group resonance.


The twin tenors tradition has a long history but with AuB it’s the collaborative writing process and blending of individual styles that drives the group sound. Together with bassist Fergus Ireland and drummer James Maddren, AuB amalgamates contemporary jazz sounds and an adventurous and electronic soundscape with a risk-taking spirit and a degree of unpredictability, nuance and intense improvisation.

Scarborough Jazz Festival, The Spa, Scarborough, Yorkshire.

We have received the following press release, issued in June 2020;

Scarborough Jazz Festival Postponed Until February 2021

 

This year’s Scarborough Jazz Festival has been postponed from September until February 2021.

 

With the COVID-19 pandemic continuing to evolve, the decision has been made to move the 3-day festival held at Scarborough Spa to the weekend of 12-14 February 2021.

 


The festival line-up remains unchanged barring one act, Swiss band VEIN who have touring commitments in Canada but it is hoped they will be part of the September 2021 Festival.

 

Due to the date change, the festival’s Earlybird weekend ticket offer has been extended until the end of October and customers only need to get in touch if they can’t make the rescheduled festival when a full refund will be given.

 

Mike Gordon, The Scarborough Jazz Festival Director said:
“Sadly, but as you probably anticipated, the Scarborough Jazz Festival will not take place in September. However, the good news is that we have decided to postpone the event until 12th to 14th February 2021. I have been in touch with all the performers we had booked for September and I’m delighted to say that of the seventeen acts only one cannot manage the February dates. I have had numerous very positive comments about the programme and we are all looking forward to a wonderful weekend-the sun has been known to shine on Scarborough in February!  Hope to see you then”.

 

The Scarborough Jazz Festival line-up features a host of established jazz musicians alongside many new faces: the ground breaking pianist Fergus McCreadie; violinist John Pearce (with Dave Newton); the eleven piece Elftet led by vibes player Johnny Mansfield and gypsy jazz from Djanco.

 

The highly respected pianist Nikki Iles has put together a Who’s Who of British jazz with her 19-piece Jazz Orchestra.

 

Another big outfit, Hans Koller – Bird Migration, will be celebrating the anniversary of Charlie Parker one of the great jazz legends and the smaller combos on the bill represent some of the UK’s most creative musicians: Julian Joseph Trio, Jean Toussaint All Star 6tet, Karen Sharp Quartet, Dave O’Higgins & Rob Luft Quartet, Phil Robson’s Organ Trio and Zoe Gilby’s Quartet who will perform her Aurora project.

 

Offering something very different will be the Oxley-Meier Guitar Project with 12 guitars on stage; words and music spinning a tale from Rafe’s Dilemma; and undoubted surprises from world class singer Ian Shaw, with Iain Ballamy and James Safir.

Concert 1 - Music at 6pm Concert 2 - Music at 9pm
Tickets £30
https://www.pizzaexpresslive.com/whats-on/clare-teal-jason-rebello

Returning to The Pheasantry following her two acclaimed and sold out 2019 shows, JBGB Events welcome the outstanding vocal delights of BBC Radio 2 broadcaster Clare Teal.


This further opportunity to hear her evocative voice spanning a wide range of delightful songs, combined with her self-deprecating northern wit, makes these concerts a must get to Summer Saturday evening at The Pheasantry.


Clare is equally at home on large stage venues, including the BBC Proms at The Albert Hall, The Cadogan Hall and the EFG London Jazz Festival with her Mini Big Band at St.John’s Smith Square, where she returns in November 2020, as well as in smaller, intimate, club environments such as The Other Palace Studio and Crazy Coqs.


For these two concerts at The Pheasantry, Clare is once again joined by her regular accompanist, the brilliant pianist Jason Rebello, winner of the British Jazz Awards 2017 Best Pianist, followed by his triumphant concert in the 2018 London Jazz Festival. His eagerly awaited performance in the 2019 Steinway two-piano Festival concert with Julian Joseph was such an outstanding success that their return to the 2020 Festival is already assured.


“Sensitive vocals, with a very personal musical approach making great songs all her own”. - Gregory Porter

From swing to sublime ballads, Clare’s Duo Concerts are renowned for their fabulous musicality coupled with Clare’s warm and witty storytelling guaranteeing the audience something uniquely personal and always very special.


The rich, jazz infused repertoire explores timeless classics penned by the legendary musical storytellers of the last 100 years and celebrates giants of the Great American and British Songbooks through to the work of more contemporary writers crafting the standards of today plus Clare’s own original compositions.


The joyous ever-evolving set list draws from a rich catalogue including selections from Cole Porter, Duke Ellington, Rodgers and Hart, Sting, Van Morrison and Ed Cobb and honouring the likes of Ella Fitzgerald, Anita O’Day, Nancy Wilson, Frances Faye and Peggy Lee.


As one of the UK’s greatest interpreters of song and much loved performers, with 15 acclaimed albums to her name, and a new album due to be released in 2020, Clare and her pianist promise a sparkling night of inspired music and unbridled entertainment, performed by the very best.


“Clare has a timeless sound to her voice and classic touch and sound to her own song-writing. Now how modern is that? Music to melt to I’d say.” - Jamie Cullum


“Ladies and gents, I’d like to introduce someone that I’m a fan of. She’s a threat! When I say a threat, she’s a triple threat - she writes, she sings and she can do like a fire thing right!? Please go out and buy Clare Teal’s record! - Michael Bublé


“The new first lady of Jazz” – The Independent


“A First Class Evening’s Entertainment from The Queen of Swing” – Time Out


“In this overcrowded field, Clare Teal deserves special attention” – Daily Telegraph,


“Fabulous” – Daily Mail,


“This is as good as they come” – Jazzwise,


“[Get Happy]... heralds the arrival of a major new talent… If we rave about it, it’s because it’s worth raving about”  - Michael Parkinson, BBC Radio 2,


“Some singers sing standards, some sing their own material, but very few do both and even fewer do it well. Clare Teal is one of those rarities” - The Observer

A Winged Victory for the Sullen

Thu 19 Nov 2020, Barbican Hall, 8pm

Tickets £22.50 – 27.50 plus booking fee

Purveyors of contemporary ambient and electronic inspired music, A Winged Victory for the Sullen return to the Barbican’s music programme this autumn in a concert covering a cross-section of their material old and new. The duo – a collaboration between Adam Wiltzie (Stars of the Lid) and pianist and composer Dustin O’Halloran – has nurtured a cult status over the past decade as one of the most experimental voices in contemporary-classical music today.

Both artists are also important innovators in their own right and they have separately had a hand in iconic film scores and game-changing ambient-classical groups. Their material together has produced a series of records for Erased Tapes and Kranky, and their latest 2019 album The Undivided Five marked their Ninja Tune debut. It is only their second piece of original music outside of film, TV and stage commissions, and sees them pay greater heed to the small details in their sound than previously, channelling influences from Debussy to Jóhann Jóhannsson. The Undivided Five is their fifth release, and they have embraced the serendipitous role of the number five, inspired by artist Hilma af Klint and the recurrence of the perfect fifth chord.


A Winged Victory for the Sullen return to the Barbican’s contemporary music programme following two sold-out shows at Milton Court Concert Hall in October 2014 and their headline appearance in the Barbican Hall in December 2015, which also featured Hauschka as a special guest.

Produced by the Barbican in association with Bird on the Wire

We have received the following press release;


Marcus Miller, Incognito, Courtney Pine & Omar, and Jazzie B are the first acts to be announced, with the festival to be held on Sunday 26th July at Alexandra Palace.


World-famous jazz club Ronnie Scott’s has today announced the launch of Milestones, a brand-new one-day jazz festival, which will take place at Alexandra Palace in North London on Sunday 26th July.


This comes after a landmark year of 6 th anniversary celebrations in 2019, which culminated in a spectacular sold-out gala concert at the Royal Albert Hall in October. Milestones Festival promises to transport Ronnie Scott’s world-class line-up of acts outside of the club’s walls in Soho, and into the stunning grounds of Alexandra Palace.


There will be three stages: the Main Stage outside, the Indoor Stage in Ally Pally’s newly refurbished Theatre, and the DJ Stage. Confirmed to play are American superstar bassist Marcus Miller, funk and soul legends Incognito, British jazz icon Courtney Pine with special guest Omar, and DJ, producer and founder of Soul II Soul, Jazzie B. More acts will be announced in the coming weeks.


Simon Cooke, Managing Director at Ronnie Scott’s says: “We had an extraordinarily successful 60th anniversary here at the club, and wanted to build on the momentum of our activity in 2019 by launching what we believe will be the most exciting jazz festival in London. Milestones, as the name suggests, will mark a new era for Ronnie Scott’s, where we can take the Ronnie’s name and the greatest musicians and acts from the world of jazz to an even bigger audience.  We have been looking to do something different for a while and I guess an outdoor day/ evening festival is about as different as we could get from the club in Soho.”


Nick Lewis, Head of Music and Promotions at Ronnie Scott’s says: “When the team at Alexandra Palace offered us loan of the site for the day, it was too good an opportunity to turn down. Alexandra Palace is a stunningly beautiful backdrop for a festival with beautiful views over the city; it also has history in live jazz (the Capital Radio Jazz Festival ran there from 1979-1980). We’re incredibly excited to be bringing a one-day, proper music festival to this part of town.”


Alex Losardo, External Events Programmer and Manager at Ronnie Scott’s says: “To have the opportunity to program a music festival with the legendary Ronnie Scott’s Jazz Club in such a historic place, Alexandra Palace, is humbling to say the least.  Right now, in London we are in a moment where there is an incredible amount of world-class music being created and performed live.  I am thrilled to be a part of this team,presenting such a special outing for the first time”.


Simon Fell, Events Director at Alexandra Palace, says: “It’s fantastic to be welcoming Ronnie Scott’s to Ally Pally this summer. The line-up looks amazing, the setting is superb and it should all make for a brilliant day. Ronnie Scott’s have an ever-growing history of putting on great shows here at Ally Pally and it’s exciting to expand this to a packed one-day festival. I can only encourage you to come along and join in.”


Festival attendees will also be able to sample delicious street food, craft ales and cocktails, and there will be a VIP bar for Ronnie Scott’s members.
