Coventry Jazz Festival 2009.


 I had a postcard on Saturday from the organisers of this year’s Coventry Jazz Festival. This is pretty much what it contained:





The dates for Coventry’s 11th Jazz Festival have been announced, with an array of world class artists set to perform.This year, the festival will return from 21st – 25th May 09 , and will see performances from some of the world’s most renowned jazz artists, which include Maceo Parker, Robert Fripp & Theo Travis, Jacqui Dankworth, The Don Weller Big Band and Portico Quartet.

There’ll also be performances from Empirical, The Neil Cowley Trio and Tim Garland Acoustic Trio , with more acts to be announced soon!

In 2009 we will be presenting music in several venues across the city, including The Belgrade Theatre, Coventry Cathedral and Taylor John’s House. 


I’m very pleased to see Tim Garland in the line-up. He is, in my humble opinion, one of the best performers and composers to come on the British scene in the last thirty years.
