The Ferry in Glasgow is putting on a mini jazz festival, Jazz on the River, next weekend:

  • The Ryan Quigley Big Band, Friday 31st, 8pm
  • Courtney Pine, Saturday 1st, 8pm
  • Phil Mason All Stars, Sunday 2nd, 2.30pm

I can’t remember the Ferry putting on much jazz in the past, so I hope this is the start of a trend. The Edinburgh Jazz and Blues Festival is on at the same time, and it looks as if they’ve been canny enough to invite over a couple of acts who are playing there.

The Phil Mason show is billed as “Trad in the Sun”: let’s hope that’s not over-optimistic.
