Following on from last year͛s phenomenal 25th Anniversary, the EFG London Jazz Festival has announced details of its 2018 line-up which brings jazz to the streets, clubs and concert halls of London. Acts so far announced include international stars and homegrown successes, from Madeleine Peyroux͛’s new Anthem tour, to a welcome return for Bobby McFerrin, a rare London show from Lea DeLaria– most recently recognised as Boo from Orange Is The New Black, but with a decade-spanning jazz career behind her. We see Orphy Robinson͛’s reinterpretation of the classic Van Morrison album Astral Weeks, with Zara McFarlane and Sarah Jane Morris to celebrate the 50th Anniversary of the album͛s release, and Snarky Puppy͛s Bill Laurance in a new collaboration with the WDR Big Band. Other names include Jeff Goldblum (more via NME), Kandace Springs and the recent one-to-watch, Nubya Garcia. This year’s program will also take in both a cultural celebration of the Windrush generation (curated by Anthony Joseph) and a tribute to the life & music of Hugh Masekela.
