Michael Lington & Richard Elliot Live in London

It seems like ages (doesn't January appear to have gone on forever?) but we've finally got some live shows coming up soon in London.

First Michael Lington is coming for a two night stopover on Wednesday 15th & Thursday 16th February at Pizza Express in Kings Road, Chelsea. It's the first ever engagement for at the brand new music room at The Pheasantry (Eric Clapton's old home).

Then we have Richard Elliot coming to play 5 shows in 4 nights commencing March 8th.

Tickets for all of these shows are on sale now. Go to The Smooth Jazz Events Page for full details, prices and booking links.

Smooth Jazz 24/7

A little over 6 months down the line, it's time to look back on our newest project, which has put DJs on air through the medium of Internet radio and attempted to keep smooth jazz alive in the process. The listenership has tripled during that time and continues to grow, so I'm hoping for big things in the coming year.

I'd like to say a big thanks to Ari and Duy at Sky for giving Smooth Jazz 24/7 the chance in the first place. Also a big thanks to my wife Steph, who contributes a heck of a lot of her time each day to spread the load, and without whom the whole thing would have sunk without trace in month one.

Also a huge thanks to a whole host of people who present shows and/or have recorded sound bites to make Smooth Jazz 24/7 what it is. Namely, Carmen Kennedy, Lynda Clayton, Dianna Rose, Bruce Nazarian, Lynn Briggs, Oli Silk, Marc Antoine, Nick Colionne, Euge Groove, Dave Koz, Paul Brown, Peter White, Stewart Coxhead, Miles Gilderdale, Boney James, Brian Simpson, Brian Culbertson, Jeff Golub, Jessy J, Jeff Lorber, Jonathan Fritzen, Michael Lington, Mindi Abair, Paul Hardcastle, Richard Elliot, Steve Oliver & Victor Fields.

The biggest thanks of all goes to our fantastic listeners who tune in daily. Without you it wouldn't be happening at all.
