Which isn't to say there's nothing for fans of traditional jazz or blues music - after all, they're the foundation upon which so much else is based. You'll always find incredible soloists, brilliant big bands and everything in between, in venues both intimate and vast.
But if you fancy exploring the ways in which the classic old styles can work with the new, then you'll be spoiled for choice. You'll hear what happens when jazz meets hip-hop, witness the wonders of blues encountering electronica, and groove to classic funk blended with breathless jungle breakbeats!
All in the space of two weeks in July, here in Edinburgh. See you soon?
