Taking place from the 13th to the 22nd of November, the London Jazz Festival is a celebration of London's cultural diversity and the music that has been an important part of London's history and identity. Not only is it an opportunity to discover the music of new artists as well as appreciate the classics, the festival offers a broad range of projects and events that everyone can get involved with.
To kick Jazz Week off in style, LIBRARY will be welcoming Canadian trumpet player Jay Phelps and his quartet for a live performance on Friday 13th November 2015. Phelps's music is classic and smooth but with a fiery energy and passion to it. He has performed and recorded with an impressive list of artists including Jamie Cullum, Amy Winehouse and Courtney Pine.
