2013 London Jazz Festival Launch

Jez Nelson hosts a special edition of Jazz on 3 live from Ronnie Scott's jazz club in Soho on the opening night of the 2013 London Jazz Festival. As ever the programme features exclusive performances from some of the most sought-after acts at the festival, illustrating the breadth and quality of both established and new artists on the current jazz scene.

The line-up includes the avant-jazz-funk of long-running US organ trio Medeski Martin and Wood, plus one the UK's hottest outfits, Sons of Kemet, whose two drummers and tuba, and the saxophone of leader Shabaka Hutchings, will bring heavy carnival flavours to the party.

Presenter: Jez Nelson
