Birmingham all the way

The big event in Birmingham yesterday was the Zoomed launch of Cormac Loane's excellent book Improvising on a Theme which traced the history of the Birmingham Music Service.

We stay with Birmingham today having received the news that guitarist Francis Tulip (pictured) has been awarded the Bmus Jazz Performance prize after successfully  completing his degree  at the Royal Birmingham Conservatoire. It was awarded for the highest mark of the year group in his final recital (marked by Iain Ballamy and Gareth Williams).

Congratulations Francis.

Francis, along with Xhosa Cole (pictured), is due to appear at The Globe on Dec, 13*. Hopefully, it will have a select socially distanced audience so book now. However, if you leave it too late all is not lost. Like all the Jazz Co-op's events there will be a live stream.

Once again, well done Francis!
