Back in April last year, Richard Exall commented on Jazz&Jazz: “Without this kind of work, live jazz would be dead!”
He was referring to Tad Newton’s sterling work in promoting jazz throughout the year in and around Northampton and further south in Bedford. Any jazz promoter will tell you that these days it takes dedication and stoicism organising jazz for just one club let alone several venues. More so those promoters with their own bands. Because Tad also needs to allocates slots for his own band and musicians – Tad Newton’s Jazz Friends – besides booking them into venues far and wide!
Not an easy task!

ongoing May/December Jazz Fest! Read on!
