British Jazz has been thriving since its emergence shortly after the end of World War 1. Influenced by American Jazz, UK artists strived to stamp their own personality to create a unique music scene that goes from strength to strength. We take a look at the top British jazz artists who dominate the UK jazz and blues scene.
The ‘Mumbles Music Mile Festival’ originally started out as the ‘Mumbles Mostly Jazz and Blues Festival’ in 2010. It changed its name a year later and is now sadly no longer, despite the best efforts of eager locals and business people.
Set in the picturesque Mumbles area of Swansea, festival goers enjoyed spectacular views across The Gower Peninsula and Swansea Bay and some of the best grassroots jazz and blues of the modern era.
