Edinburgh Jazz Festival

EJBF 2012: Paul Kirby East-West; Haftor Medboe and Anneke Kampman

In amongst the crowd-pleasing hurly-burly and boogie-woogie brought to Edinburgh Jazz and Blues Festival audiences courtesy of Jools Holland, Curtis Stigers and Kyle Eastwood in terms of mainstream jazz, it was good to come across a few smaller gigs which show that modern jazz still has a few tricks up its sleeves.
