Bebop Spoken There

Brian Dee: "I feel my generation had one advantage over today's players in that we were not musically educated in colleges, so we all sounded different. I could tell who it was just by the sound." - (Jazz Rag, Summer 2020).

DJAZZ 2020 cancelled.

(Press release)
We’re sure this will come as no surprise but it is with a heavy heart that we have reached the decision to cancel the 2020 edition of DJAZZ. 
We have spent the last few weeks taking stock of the situation and looking into various options, but have been unable to find a way to deliver the festival the way we’d like it to be.
Like many others, we’ll be taking this time to consider the environment for live music amidst COVID-19. We will bide our time and learn from the music industry’s wider response as we work out what the role of DJAZZ is over the next few months.

Please bear with us and know that we’ll be back as soon as the time is right.
2019 re-cap video (See previous post).
This video documents the third edition of the festival which took place in June 2019... HUGE thanks to Oxley Media for capturing the essence of the festival so beautifully, and to all who attended and played.
We couldn't catch everyone on cam, but it was all lush
