By the time I’ve posted this, Brass Jaw will have played the first of their ten – yes, ten – gigs at the London Jazz Festival.

Has this cow been Branded?

As well as hearing some great jazz, anyone going along to any of the shows will get the chance to buy a pre-release copy of their new album, “Branded”. The rest of us will have to wait until December the 1st, when it’s officially released. You can hear a sneak preview on the band’s website.

Their Friday night set, part of an excellent triple bill which also includes the Asaf Sirkis Trio and a Bobby Wellins Quartet, will be broadcast on BBC Radio Three’s Jazz Line-up on Sunday December 12th.
