Jazz @ Nairn to Return

Jazz promotions are returning to Nairn. Once renowned for high quality jazz concerts and an annual jazz festival that saw musicians including Stanley Turrentine, Gene Harris, Benny Green, Scott Hamilton and Warren Vache appear in the small seaside town in the Scottish Highlands, Nairn was left without any regular live jazz when promoter and jazz festival founder Ken Ramage died in 2011. Now a group of enthusiasts is hoping to renew the town’s jazz reputation through the recently formed Jazz Nairn, promoting concerts and working towards the jazz festival’s return. Italian pianist Rossano Sportiello, a popular visitor to Nairn during Ken Ramage’s time, plays the first concert on Thursday May 8 at Nairn Community and Arts Centre. The National Youth Jazz Orchestra of Scotland, with guest saxophonist Gordon McNeill, follows on July 17.
