We at Jazz West Midlands are trying to keep jazz alive for you, in the absence of our regular Friday and Festival programmes; by creating a series of sound and vision experiences broadcast via our website. Over the coming weeks we will be listing a series of members favourite jazz artists for you to listen to, in a series recorded just for you jazz gigs by musicians Jazz West Midlands Promoters have supported in the past.
The musicians will be paid for their content, so anyone wishing to contribute can do so by sending a donation over to Jazz West Midlands - details available by clicking on the donations button below..
Over the next few weeks, and maybe months, we will be commissioning jazz musicians to record just for Jazz West Midlands Promoters a short set of tunes, mixing original and standard tunes. The gigs will be featured on our website just as a normal gig. Except the video content will be on the gig page itself.
Please support the musicians and West Midlands Jazz Promoters in these trying times.
