The Performance Series

Every Monday at 6pm the Performance Series celebrates the best of live jazz performance.

Presented by Ruth Fisher, the programme features legendary artists in concert, and exclusive live jazz, blues and soul acoustic sessions recorded at Jazz FM’s studios. The Performance Series is in partnership with Rathbones a leading wealth management provider.

In addition to the programme partnership Jazz FM and Rathbones have teamed up to create Jazz in the City, a series of live performances featuring some of the best emerging and established jazz musicians in the UK. Jazz in the City opened with an exclusive performance by the very talented James Beckwith Trio at Rathbones head offices in the City of London. 

Most recently Jazz in the City was hosted in Edinburgh at the Ghillie Dhu. Set in the enchanting Grade A listed former church, guests danced away to multi award-winning Scottish saxophonist Tommy Smith, accompanied by his live band. Taking the audience on an exciting jazz journey, Tommy played an exclusive selection from his latest album ahead of its official launch at the Edinburgh Jazz Festival.

A highlights video of the event will be available soon, but in the meantime go to Rathbones Facebook page to see photographs of the band in full swing. 

Rathbones next Jazz in the City is back in London in September followed by live jazz from their Jersey office. To find out more follow Rathbones on Twitter @Rathbones1742.
