Featured events for EFG London Jazz Festival

‘A dazzling display across the musical spectrum’ (★★★★★ Guardian)

We’re pulling out all the stops to bring you a bumper year as we celebrate 25 years of the EFG London Jazz Festival (Friday 10 - Sunday 19 November). 

Our lineup includes a wealth of international legends to London’s concert halls, with new music, emerging British stars and outstanding collaborations all added into the mix. 

From Abdullah Ibrahim and Hugh Masekela re-visiting their days as The Jazz Epistles in fifties South Africa, a brand new project from Marcus Miller, and a welcome visit from Gipsy Kings founder, Chico & The Gypsies.

We welcome the infectious energy of Harlem Gospel Choir touching down from New York, and Average White Band with up-and-coming vocal power trio LaSharVu, as well as Paolo Conte’s powerful blend of jazz and tango rhythms.

There is a special concert for the 90th birthday of Jobim, with his songbook interpreted by Carminho, and a remarkable new work commissioned from Phronesis, Dave Maric and Engines Orchestra. 

Further shows include Tomasz Stańko's New York Quartet, the remarkable Cuban piano pairing of Chucho Valdés and Gonzalo Rubalcaba, the sonic universe of ECM artist Andy Sheppard, the exquisite mandolin and piano combo of Chris Thile and Brad Mehldau, a trip to the Mediterranean with Taksim Trio and Dorantes, the incomparable Ben l’Oncle Soul singing Frank Sinatra, Snarky Puppy's Bill Laurance, Henri Texier's Hope Quartet, a trip to Napoli with Stefano Bollani and the Beats & Pieces Big Band.

HOAX WARNING 

Several  scammers are at work, cutting and pasting sections of copy relating to the Jazz Festival and spamming databases, pretending to make an offer for bands to take part in the Festival, conditional on them paying some items like visa costs or a travel contribution. They are operating under several names, but they are nothing to do with the Festival.   We never ask for payments to take part in the Festival, and we are looking at legal options to end this abuse.   If you know anyone who has been approached in this way, please tell them not to be fooled.  We are very sorry about the disappointment and confusion this has caused.
