Jazz FM is getting into the swing of the EFG London Jazz Festival this year, with a series of live outside broadcasts featuring live music from the stars of the festival for free from Kings Place.
Jazz FM in collaboration with the EFG London Jazz Festival has been broadcasting a series of live outside broadcasts featuring live music from the stars of the festival.
From Kings Place in North London, Chris Philips’ Mid-Morning programme on Friday 13th was followed by Nigel Williams bringing his Saturday morning programme the next day. Live music over those two dates from our very own free stage included Cecilia Stalin, Theo Croker, Liv Warfield, Becca Stevens, Lionel Loueke and Daniel Herskedal.
Our final live broadcast this Saturday 21st November with Nigel Williams features live performances from Jose James, Moon Hooch and Badass Brass with more artists to be confirmed. Come and join us for some free live music and for your chance to see how a live outside radio broadcast works.
The EFG London Jazz Festival brings hundreds of live jazz events to the capital for ten days from Friday 13th to Sunday 22nd November. With events ranging from large venues such as The Barbican and Kings Place to the smaller venues like the Hideaway in Streatham and the Vortex in Dalston featuring artists such as those at the outside broadcasts and Jamie Cullum, Terence Blanchard, Jarrod Lawson and Christine Tobin with gigs already sold out for Keith Jarrett and Kurt Elling.
Presenter Nigel Williams said: “I am so pleased that we have been able to use our unique relationship with these fine artists to give our listeners the experience of hearing them live. Our studio sessions have already brought another dimension to Jazz FM’s programmes . Now we are very excited to be giving our listeners the chance to see for themselves, or if they are unable to make it to the outside broadcast, hear it on the radio, live, as it happens, one take, one moment; that’s jazz!”
