BRECON JAZZ FESTIVAL 2018 – LISTEN AGAIN
AUDIO LINKS – sounds of the festival – 13 hours of radio coverage: with thanks again to Rhys Phillips. NB the BJF audio appears as part of radio programme packages and thus includes intros, commentary, recorded inserts from different CDs and other artists etc (it’s much more than a straight recording)
Sunday includes also Gerard Cousins, Martha Skilton and Toots Thielman tribute sets in Muse and Wellington that day.
You might also want to watch our short video of BJF2017. Or revel in the delights of Jazzmann Ian Mann’s spectacular reviews of everything jazz at BJF2018, 2017, 2016…
