JAZZ & BLUES
At the nearby Pizza Express Jazz Club, former Yes-man Bill Bruford leads his Earthworks quartet on a return to his jazz roots from Wednesday to Sunday.
Tonight, talented singer Ian Shaw makes the first of two appearances at the Islington International Festival by appearing with Claire Martin; he appears solo on Thursday.
Traditional virtues will be to the fore on Friday, when the veteran singer Marion Montgomery appears at Blackheath Halls (0181-473 0100) with her trio. Meanwhile, a rather looser jazz will be on display at Camden's Jazz Cafe, where the reggae-ska-jazz fusionists Jazz Jamaica take the stage. And more of the same will be available the previous evening when Ernest Ranglin, the Jamaican guitarist whose album In Search of the Lost Riddim was a great success, appears with a Senegalese band at the Barbican Centre.
