A Truly 21st Century Jazz Festival: Love Supreme 

"It is a common view point held by many that support my football team, Huddersfield town, that our club are extremely lucky to have at their helm a chairman who cares deeply about the club, its fans and its future".

This analogy is one that I never thought I could crowbar into 'Jazz Shaped'; the worlds of football and music (or more specifically football and jazz music) seem to co-inside just about never, the tenuous example that I can conjure being a trumpet at an England game (Y'know because a trumpet is a quintessential jazz instrume... no forget it that's too stretched even for this blog). Regardless of whatever level of inter-industry relevance that both entity's share, UK jazz seems to have its very own version of my beloved club's financier in that most prolific of genre supporters 'Jazz FM', and alongside 'Serious', 'Ingenious' and 'Neapolitan Music', I present to you their next project:

It has been a long time coming but 2013 will see emergence of what promises to be one of the most exciting developments on the UK jazz scene for some time; The Love Supreme Jazz Festival. With a beautiful location, prime summer dates, and a host of incredible artists already confirmed including 'The Neil Cowley Trio', 'Jools Holland and His Rhythm & Blues Orchestra', 'Zara McFarlane', 'Soweto Kinch', 'Marcus Miller' and 'Brandon Marsalis' as well as camping available JUST LIKE A PROPER COMMERCIAL FESTIVAL, this 3 day spectacle promises to offer everything that the big hitters will be - signalling a brave and necessary stance for the 21st century progression of jazz music.
