This year’s Glasgow Jazz Festival will run from Wednesday 30th June to Sunday 1st July.

The first few details of the programme were announced at last night’s Ryan Quigley Big Band gig (review to follow):

  • Ryan Quigley Big Band play the music of the Beatles (Saturday 30th)
  • The Robert Glasper Experiment. The US pianist’s hip-hop influenced electric band
  • Kairos 4tet. Highly-rated band from down south, which includes Ivo Neame on piano and Jasper Høiby on bass (ie two-thirds of Phronesis)

That’s a good start.
