If you had the time of your life during the 25th edition, you will almost certainly be blown away by the 26th!
325 shows with more than 2000 artists performing on 70+ stages throughout 10 days. This is what EFG London Jazz Festival 2018has in store for every music lover. The upcoming episode of the event, arguably the most all-embracing one to date, is upon us. Like every November since the 1970s, London is going to enjoy a full-immersion in jazzy notes and outstanding musicianship.
Since it would be far too lengthy to write about every single event on the calendar or even mention the dozens of festival highlights, we have decided to put our words into music by compiling a video-playlist.
Get ready for ten days of jazz in every shape and dimension with our London Jazz Festival playlist!

Big Bad Shake is the new track from Kansas Smitty's House Band. Recorded in just one day at their East London basement HQ, it marks a departure from the swing style that dominated their earlier releases, and a movement into something heavier.
The layered percussion track and jagged Telecaster set up a rhythm track that itches to be played loud. Adrian Cox's lead vocals crunch through a New Orleans invocation to get up and shake, as the Kansas Smitty's House Band grow up into an edgier sound.
