Festival On the Move with Brass Jaw
One of the great things about the London Jazz Festival is that there is never a dull moment and the Southbank, with its multitude of performance spaces, is one of the best places to be over the next few days. I had half an hour to kill before the Branford Marsalis concert last night, so I wandered over to the Festival Hall thinking I'd have a quiet cup of coffee and check on the #LJF Twitter stream. Instead I discovered a packed Clore Ballroom enjoying a free performance by Brass Jaw, a sax and trumpet quartet who are quite simply stunning. Brass Jaw have been performing all over the place over the last few days as part of the Festival On the Move. I caught up with the boys over some well-earned post-performance drinks, during which they explained what they're doing at the festival.
