Jazz on a summer's eve #mjf2016

Day 4 of the 21st annual Manchester Jazz Festival saw lots of free events, which are always a great opportunity to try something new. I really enjoyed The Firebird Quartet and there were some other great bands too. A well attended day with plenty of good food and drink too, but the usual dearth of female musicians. Why are so may jazz ensembles male-only? It's 2016 not 1956...


  1. Plenty about, I guess they need inviting :)

  2. Some of my preferred jazz artists around today are fronted by women. I love the music. Our jazz festival ran for a couple of weeks into the first few days of July.

  3. In 2016, as in 1956, women are less likely to have hobbies than men.

    Unless you count shopping for clothes, beauty treatments and going to the hairdressers as hobbies.

    1. I see you've resurfaced from whatever cave you live in, Pete. Someday it'll collapse in on you. You won't be missed, old boy.

      The fact that knuckle dragging morons like you waste perfectly good oxygen is an insult to the progress of the human race.
