Reviews of the Cheltenham Jazz Festival...

'If someone doesn’t get jazz, how do you woo them towards enjoying it? The Cheltenham Jazz Festival, with 47 official concerts plus a lively fringe, is a good answer, offering the chance to dip into many different styles of jazz' - The Times.

'The great thing about Cheltenham Jazz Festival is that it brings together so many genres under the umbrella of jazz…I think it is one of the best Jazz Festivals in the world so it’s amazing for me to be here' - Jamie Cullum

"One of the UK's classiest and most eclectic jazz festivals" - The Guardian
