    The 2016 Cheltenham Jazz Festival will once again deliver a hugely diverse programme that combines established stars with up and coming talent from across the worlds of jazz, blues, pop and soul and will also see the initiation of an expanded ‘…around town’ programme featuring pop up gigs and performances in various indoor and outdoor spaces across Cheltenham.

    In what is arguably its most star-studded line-up to date, this year’s festival will feature performances from Grammy nominated singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Lianne La Havas, the queen of UK soul Beverley Knight, Elbow front man Guy Garvey performing tracks from his 2015 album Courting The Squall, a show by popular UK songstress Corinne Bailey Rae ahead of the release of her hotly-tipped third album, a special Quincy Jones-themed concert featuring the BBC Concert Orchestra & Guy Barker Big Band with guest appearances from Liv Warfield and Madeline Bell, and a closing night concert from the festival’s Artistic Curator Jamie Cullum.

    These names join the long list of more international artists that includes US vocalist José James, Grammy-winning saxophonist David Sanborn, visionary US trumpeter Christian Scott aTunde Adjuah, Meadow performing a tribute to pianist John Taylor, prodigious multi-instrumentalist Jacob Collier, Australian future-soul band Hiatus Kaiyote, Tim Berne’s Snakeoil, the Becca Stevens Band, Ibibio Sound Machine, the UK premiere of  saxophonist Julian Argüelles’ Let It Be Told project, Giovanni Guidi Trio, Omar Sosa’s Quarteto AfroCubano and Rom Schaerer Eberle.
