Liverpool's first International Jazz Festival takes place for a full four days from Thursday 28th February until Sunday 3rd March 2013, all under one roof at The Capstone Theatre in Liverpool.
Headlined by Roller Trio, Led Bib, Robert Mitchell, Kit Downes Quintet, Denys Baptiste's Triumvirate and Courtney Pine. Supporting these jazz supremos will be a series of free performances by Liverpool jazz musicians, including Blind Monk Trio, Martin Smith's The Weave, Perri and Neil Quartet, White Canvas and GORP.
Exclusive to the Liverpool International Jazz Festival, The Capstone Theatre and specialist woodwind retailer Curly Woodwind will present two free saxophone workshops and masterclasses. The first will see renowned saxophone recording artist, author and composer Pete Thomas, alongside legendary sax stars Bobby Wellins and Tony Kofi, discuss how to achieve the best sound on your instrument. The second class will see professional saxophonist, consultant and teacher Graeme Turner offer the very best advice on how to improvise effectively.
