National Jazz Federation presents the
SECOND BRITISH FESTIVAL OF JAZZ
The National Jazz Federation welcomes you to the Second British Festival of Jazz, and hopes that you will enjoy the concert. During the past year we have tried to maintain a high standard of entertainment, interspersing the regular appearances by the leading exponents of both the Traditional and Modern Schools at the Recital Room, with large concerts both at the Festival Hall and in the provinces. We have also tried to give a hearing to the new groups and the fresh voices in British Jazz, and to welcome visiting jazz personalities to our shows. A glance at to-day’s programme should show you that we are continuing the good work, and we look forward to redoubling our efforts to provide you with the “ Best of the Best ” in the coming year.
