Jazz festival of the week: Glasgow International Jazz Festival, various venues, Glasgow
Friday 21 June 2013
One of the highlights of this festival's 27th year will be the Blind Boys of Alabama on Thursday, while young saxophonist Laura Macdonald fronts a quartet including bassist Michael Janisch.
Burt Bacharach is on Friday, and over 29 and 30 June there's free-jazz terror from the Ames Room, singer Sarah Jane Morris, the great Stan Tracey Quartet, and the quietly spectacular Matt Halsall with experimental trio GoGo Penguin.
Throughout, there is also a delicious series of Classic Album Sundays, where the likes of Way Out West, Time Out and A Love Supreme are played on vinyl, on one of the world's best hi-fi systems.
