As we all know there are no live gigs taking place in the immediate future. However, any links to jazz streaming that are deemed suitable - i.e. with a professional approach - will be considered for posting.

GIJF Help wanted.

I wondered if readers could help me with my Festival decisions.  In deciding which jazz gigs to attend/avoid I frequently rely on the opinion of people whose opinions I respect.  Bireli Lagrene has been highly recommended to me, conversely he has been largely dismissed as little more than a technician.  So, should I invest my pension in a ticket or sit by the fire drinking cocoa and watching the TV?  Advice very welcome.

The Jazz From The North afternoon sessions look promising and the opportunity to hear Jacqui Dankworth, Mark Nightingale and Jason Yarde with NYJO is also high on my agenda. Then there are the free sessions on the concourse...
