London Jazz Festival 2010

"Welcome to this year’s London Jazz Festival, produced by Serious in association with BBC Radio 3.
Our city’s annual celebration of jazz continues to grow and grow, enabled by a strong network of relationships with artists, venues, producers and sponsors. These partnerships make the Festival what it is and we thank everyone for the part they play. The programme features international and home-grown stars from across the generations and a number of themes can be found running through the Festival: this year includes a focus on French, Scottish and Danish music, alongside a final weekend of events celebrating the vibrant UK scene; Latin jazz makes a big impact, with a particular emphasis on Cuba; the sound of the big bands includes new projects from Norway, France, USA and UK; and a strand evoking the spirit of European cabaret and chanson provides a further set of contrasts. Premieres, commissions, collaborations and family-friendly work are in abundance and around a quarter of the 250-plus events are free. There is much to explore and looking beyond the concert halls and clubs you will find a series of talks, masterclasses and workshops offering an open door into the music and its history. Behind the scenes our Learning & Participation team runs a hub of activity, working with artists, local schools and communities. Through the huge international city that is London, the Festival takes the global language of jazz far and wide. But if you are not in the capital there is no need to miss out. BBC Radio 3 will broadcast over 40 hours of music and you can join the blogging and tweeting online. Download the Festival’s iPhone app for your pocket-sized programme and to share your photos and experiences.
