For all its faults as a newspaper, the (Glasgow) Herald often has a lot of good jazz coverage, largely courtesy of Rob Adams. Having an Arts Editor (Keith Bruce) who likes jazz obviously helps. There are a couple of good articles cum interviews with visiting musicians this week:
Kurt Elling, is at the Queen’s Hall in Edinburgh, with the Norbotten Big Band who, from the little I’ve heard of them (they play on one of Jonas Kullhammar’s albums), are very good indeed. Rob Adams is very enthusiastic about this gig, so if you’re in the area it’s probably worth getting along to.
Julian Siegel, is playing at the City Halls Recital Room in Glasgow with drummer Joey Barron and ex-Ornette Coleman bass-player Greg Cohen on Wednesday 14th, then touring the UK.
