Tonight is your last chance to see Digby Fairweather playing his solo set, backed up by the Craig Milverton trio, this time taking place at the tres chic Hotel du Vin at 7.30pm.
Other highlights today include the last session at the tremendously popular Lord Clifden. They conclude their involvement this year by showcasing the mighty sound of trumpeter Bruce Adams, playing tonight with the John Patrick Trio, at 8pm. If you haven't yet checked out this venue, and sampled their specially-brewed Festival Ale "Digby's Dilemma", then tonight is your last chance.
Val Wiseman, of Lady Sings The Blues fame, warms up for tomorrow's All Star Jam Session at the Botanical Gardens by taking her quartet to the Living Room at 8pm. She was recognised as one of the country's top singers with her first British Jazz Award in 2008.
Also recommended today are the Kings Bruton Big Band, a collection of talented young musicians playing a broad repertoire encompassing most jazz styles. Find them at Waters Edge Bandstand at 6pm. Please note that both their performances tomorrow (Thursday) will take place at City Inn.
Tomorrow Digby Fairweather will be giving an informal talk, illustrated with recordings, on '25 Years of the Jazz Festival' at Borders book store in the Bullring, before concluding his Jazz Festival involvement this year by fronting the All Star Jam Session.
