Looking Ahead to 2016 at The Walnut Tree Jazz Club, Blisworth


Occasionally, I have been criticised for featuring jazz only in my own locality!

If you explore Jazz&Jazz thoroughly I’m sure you will agree this is not the case. I help promote jazz not only close to home and not only in the UK but on the Continent, in America, Japan – in fact worldwide. But obviously no way can I myself globe trot for jazz. I have to rely on submissions from festivals, clubs, bands, musicians and fans from around the world.

But I would love to be able to cover jazz further afield myself and film YouTubes of bands playing in a variety of locations. Just today I received this message: “Congratulation on the thriving news feed you are providing for us jazzers, and thanks for the hard work that must be involved!” I replied, “Frankly I’m looking into honest ways of raising a dime or two to help finance my efforts.” Why? Because then I would be able to reach out in person more often way beyond my own locality.

Sorry to digress but I thought it a good opportunity to get this message across at the same time as promoting the variety of jazz bands booked to appear at one of the several clubs within striking distance of home in the first six months of 2016. And this is just one of Tad Newton’s jazz venues.
