So, we've got some great guests appearing this year for thinking with jazz. John Cumming from the London Jazz Festival (www.serious.org.uk), Fiona Talkington from BBC Radio 3 (www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b006tp52), Gerry Godley from the Improvised Music Company (www.improvisedmusic.ie) and Netherlands-based author and musician Kristin McGee (www.kristinmcgee.net), not to mention our very own Matt Robinson from LJF, and local academic, writer and bass player George McKay (georgemckay.org).
Hey, I know I'm looking forward to finding out what they all think goes into making a festival work. And probably some of things that don't work. But maybe we should get things started now.
What do you think makes a great festival?
Nick Gebhardt, Chair, LJF
