There’s plenty to savour at this year’s Manchester Jazz Festival, which runs from 31 July – 9 August. A quick scan of proceedings reveals Bugalu Foundation, Son Yambu with DJ Lubi, John Ellis Trio, New York Brass Band, Booker T Jones, Lonnie Liston Smith, Spilt Milk and London Afrobeat Collective as just a few I’m keen to check out myself. See full listings here.
Robert Glasper, of course, should need no introduction. Here, in the intimate surroundings of the RNCM, he returns to his early days of a trio.
Tickets are £20 and are available at the RNCM website.
