“Young at Heart!” Just Jazz Features Fest Jazz


Dorine tells it as it is!

“We had such a great time at Fest Jazz; I’ve not laughed so much for a long time. The guys in the band got on great and we met so many other young musicians and volunteers at the festival and will carry on telling the tale for many a year!

“The bands that performed at the festival were different, full of youth and really vibrant, and all high quality. Also second to none, is the festival’s sound system and stage lighting in the main venues. Again, the approach is a modern one, with impressive light shows on the stage that I have never seen in a UK jazz festival.

“Above all, it was wonderful to see so many young people around the festival. They help to organise as well as to run it. … We love the spirit of Fest Jazz and have already started to promote this festival to our friends.”

Thank you Just Jazz for featuring Fest Jazz so very positively. As editor of Jazz&Jazz and a firm supporter of the festival I considered your feature simply had to be reproduced here.

Then, below the feature, I give a link to the Jazz&Jazz report on the Festival which includes links to YouTubes which Ginny and I took sheer delight in filming for Trevor Stent and his fabulous Festival Team.
