Adrian Green, promoter of Southend Jazz Club, tells how he was originally inspired by the New Orleans roots of jazz. Growing up in the 50’s and 60’s it was easy to be directly motivated by the music available. With many live venues playing jazz as well as blues, young people could experience the emerging jazz genre more organically. Adrian reflects these memories as he works to keep traditional jazz alive today through promoting live performance.
