Meet Jim Smith of Brecon Jazz

A message from Paula Gardiner:

"I am inviting all Welsh jazz musos to meet at Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama, North Road, Cardiff, on January 25th, 6 till 8 pm, in order to meet Jim Smith from Brecon Jazz Festival.

"I am keen, and so is Jim, that people responsible for booking Brecon Jazz know what is happening in Wales and who is doing what, bands, musicians etc interested in playing the festival.

"The idea is that it will be informal. People can drop in, say hello etc. I will provide a form for bandleaders to fill in so we can look at building a database of local players and bands. Any demo CDs will be appreciated but web addresses also welcome.

"It's really important that Brecon Jazz is as much as an inspiration to players now as it always has been for me ... I do hope that everyone interested in the festival and being part of it can make it.

"If people are unable to attend due to gigs or geography I am happy for them to contact me by email - Paula.Gardiner @ rwcmd.ac.uk."

Brecon Jazz 2007 takes place from August 10 to 12 - for more details see
