London Jazz Festival Launch: Live at Ronnie Scott's

Jez Nelson launches the 2012 London Jazz Festival live from Ronnie Scott's jazz club in Soho, with performances including US trumpeters Terence Blanchard and Ambrose Akinmusire.

Jez Nelson presents a special edition of Jazz on 3 live from Ronnie Scott's jazz club in Soho on the opening night of the 2012 London Jazz Festival. With exclusive performances from some of the most sought-after acts at the festival, the billing illustrates the breadth and quality of both established and new artists on the current jazz scene. Highlights include performances by two top American trumpeters from different generations: Terence Blanchard brings his blend of New Orleans, soul and hard-bop to the party, while one of the biggest names to have emerged in the last couple of years, Ambrose Akinmusire, appears in a one-off duet with drummer and regular bandmate Justin Brown.
