London Jazz Festival

With this year's London Jazz Festival just around the corner the organisers have confirmed several surprise big names in addition to the line-up announced in Jazzwise last month. Now in its 13th year the festival, held in association with BBC Radio 3 and sponsored by Jazzwise, has booked the Archie Shepp Quartet for its first UK appearance in five years at the Queen Elizabeth Hall on 13 November, Branford Marsalis Quartet with a special performance of Coltrane's A Love Supreme at the QEH on 15 November and two Harry Connick Jr/Branford Marsalis duo performances at the Shaw Theatre on 16 and 18 November. And continuing the theme of big bands and large ensembles that constitutes a major strand of this year's festival, including Italian Instabile Orchestra, Mike Garrick's Jazz Britannia Big Band, Vienna Art Orchestra, Maria Schneider Orchestra and Gerald Wilson and BBC Big Band, the closing night, 20 November, features a Future Sounds of Jazz special with Gilles Peterson with the Heritage Orchestra, Robert Glasper Trio and guests.
