Leith Jazz Festival. June 2014.

The Leith Jazz Festival back in June had loads of bands hosted in pubs. So it turned into a bit of a pub crawl – one set by four groups in four pubs in one afternoon. (The festival was spread over two days, but I could only do the Saturday afternoon.) It was great fun – very busy.

I caught John Burgess’ Ugly Bug Ragtime Three – a style of music I would normally avoid, but they proved me wrong: it was very enjoyable, if unchallenging, pub-in-the-afternoon jazz – and Martin Kershaw/Ed Kelly duo – more difficult, perhaps, but rewarding.

I also saw a couple of sets by Colin Steele in different combinations, but I didn’t take any pictures of those…
