Soho Jazz Week | Improvised tunes in W1
Soho Jazz Week.
Ironically, it won’t give you the blues.
And sure, this particular event only takes place over the course of four days. But the ‘Soho’ and ‘jazz’ parts of the title are completely accurate: a collection of 15 of the neighbourhood’s legendary jazz clubs will all put on 45 shows between them.
Some of the venues include 100 Wardour Street, Ain’t Nothing But A Blues Bar, Quo Vadis, the Soho Theatre, and of course, the grand daddy of them all: Ronnie Scott’s. The performers making up the lineup include the likes of Simian Swing, Goodfoot, Billie Black, and Nathan Britton.
It’s all been organised by the people behind The Piano Bar (Soho.Live), and it culminates in a huge, free, 6hr finale across Carslile Street.
Which is tough to improv upon.
NOTE: Soho Jazz Week takes place from 11th-14th September at venues across Soho. You can find out more, and get tickets at their website right HERE.
