Jazz breaking news: Jazzwise 15th anniversary festival at Ronnie Scott’s with Ron Carter, Empirical, Chris Potter, Troyka and Arun Ghosh

http://www.jazzwisemagazine.com/images/newsimages/ron-carter.jpgJazzwise reaches a youthful 15 years of age with its April issue, out on 22 March, and to celebrate this momentous anniversary occasion a special Jazzwise to the Power of 15 Festival will be held at the world famous Ronnie Scott’s jazz club in London’s Soho from 12-17 March. The festival has been specially programmed by the Ronnie Scott’s team and Jazzwise’s Jon Newey to showcase the legacy, diversity, and cutting edge of jazz with six days of exceptional artistic talent championed by Jazzwise over the past 15 years.

Jazzwise was launched in late-March 1997 and has grown steadily over subsequent years changing the way jazz magazines look and think to become the UK’s biggest selling jazz monthly as well as the leading English language jazz magazine in Europe and the first jazz magazine app in the world. Jazzwise has won jazz publication of the year at the Ronnie Scott’s Jazz Awards in 2007 and jazz publication of the year at the Parliamentary Jazz Awards in 2007 and 2010. http://www.jazzwisemagazine.com/images/newsimages/arun-g-150-e-news.jpg
