Secret Night Gang and the story of Manchester’s bustling jazz scene
The spontaneous energy that live jazz feeds off is nigh-on impossible to capture via digital means
Good morning members — to celebrate the reopening of arts venues and cultural life, we are going to do a few newsletters over the next month that help you to decide what to go and see.
Today’s guide focuses on the city’s Jazz scene, and it’s by a first-time Mill writer called Hugh Morris, who knows this world inside out. He starts with a mini-interview with the Manchester group Secret Night Gang, and then goes on to describe what kinds of Jazz are having a moment. He ends with a really useful list of recommended gigs you can see locally in the next few months.
