JAZZ INA BOX
1988 promises a lot of quality music. By the Spring we’ll have had concerts from bands led by blistering drummer Billy Cobham and singerAstrid Gilberto; a concert, to be televised, featuring tenor toting Tommy Smith at his, amazingly, 21st birthday party, and a heavyweight month of saxophonists when we can overdose on Sonny Rollins, Wayne Shorter and Jan Garbarek. Oh by the way, Garbarek is bringing guitaristJohn McLaughlin with him! Platform, the bettervenues and a consistent rise in audiences, work to enable Scotland to be a normal part of an artist‘s European tour. More information from Platform, 26 Howe Street, Edinburgh EH3 GTG. More good news from the grass roots is oi a new Edinburgh venue in Victoria Street.
