Rob Luft - Life Is The Dancer

Jazz and joy for Rob Luft.
It does, you know - Life Goes On.
We’re looking forward to hearing Clare Teal and her regular accompanist Jason Rebello at The Pheasantry on Saturday 11 July. In advance of the gigs - we haven’t yet worked out whether to go to the early or the late sitting - we asked the singer and broadcaster about life in and out of lockdown.
Double perfection.

Kit Downes - Dreamlife of Debris

Dark, wistful and inspiring.
Mid-March 2020 will be remembered for bringing significant change to how we consume music. Many people are sitting at home listening to favourites or discovering new artists and albums. We spoke to Tom Green, British Jazz trombonist who is about to launch the second album of his extraordinary Septet.
