+ The Jazz Meet in Brussels - 25/05/2013
I’ll let the wonderful flyer (thanks, Andrew!) explain all the details. I’d just like to add that I’m very much looking forward to this date. I’ve been trying to set up (or at least been dreaming of) a dancefloor jazz night in Belgium, and this event might be a big step forward. I’ve been to The Jazz Meet in London three times already (two of which I DJ’d myself) and I’ve always had a great time listening to great music, surrounded by great people. I’m pretty sure Rob & Jarred will bring plenty of superb jazz tunes, so if you are even remotely interested in jazz music, mark the 25th in your agenda.

As my March 2012 chart - Jazz For A Sunday Afternoon - is about to reach 3000 plays and thereby being my most popular chart to date, I figured it was time for a sequel. I started selecting tunes and it became a prequel really: Jazz For A Sunday Morning. Thanks for checking it out.
About one year ago I made my first trip to London, where I guested at The Jazz Meet, an incredible weekly event with a live band and the finest jazz DJ’s in a beautiful venue in East London. A small selection of DJ’s who have DJ’ed at The Jazz Meet: Nik Weston (Mukatsuku), Raggy (Off Limit), Adrian Leach and Mark Taylor (Happy Jazz), Dom Servini. Needless to say that I feel quite honored to return to London this march to play another guest DJ set, and I’ll make sure to make a selection of some of my finest jazz tunes.
Club Floripa - London - 17th March 2013
Mike aka DJ Blueprint has been hosting a few mixes of mine on his great blog This Is Tomorrow in the past. So when he asked me to provide another one, I didn’t think twice and started working on Jazz Is Tomorrow, a one hour long mix that delves into the vaults of Blue Note, Prestige, Impulse etc. File under Hard Bop, Vocal Jazz and Latin Jazz.
