Jazz hands…

Festival season might seem a long way off but it’ll be here before you can say “barbecue summer”. Mostly Jazz (from the lovely people who bring you the Moseley Folk Festival) is a new, but very welcome addition to the calendar. Can there be anything finer than sitting out in the sun, listening to some jazz with a litre or two of cider inside you? Probably not. The line up’s looking pretty ace too with the Sun Ra Arkestra (minus Sun Ra…cos he’s a bit dead…although by a strange quirk of fate he was actually born in Birmingham…Alabama that is), Courtney Pine, JTQ and Quantic & His Combo Barbaro…plus the Cymande All Stars…if they’re anything to do with legendary soul funksters Cymande (as sampled by Grandmaster Flash amongst many others) they’ll be splendid (hold on a mo…oooooh it looks like they are!). Niiiiice. It’s all going down (in a jazz, soul, funk stylee) on the 3rd and 4th July 2010 at Moseley park. Tickets available from February 1st here.
