We understand the value of collaboration and positive partnerships so are working with some of the finest jazz venues and promoters around, and this is just the beginning."
"Whether we're supporting new releases, bringing someone special back from the past or giving a platform to celebrate tomorrow's great jazz talent, Jazz FM will be there along the way," she added.
