Manchester Jazz Festival so far...
The 2014 Manchester Jazz Festival is full swing and those not able to attend in person can stay up to date through the series of gig reviews written by singer and music journalist Rachel Maby.
A diverse programme (aided perhaps by the glorious sunshine) has meant that many gigs have sold out already, including the premiere of Anton Hunter's Article XI - this year's MJF Commission and US trio The Bad Plus. Monday's Jazz North showcase, 12 hours of music from their Northern Line groups, saw 7,000 people attend throughout the day.
Rachel's reviews can be seen on the MJF website.
