Jazz artists from around the world are bringing their music to London this week for the annual EFG London Jazz Festival.

The festival started on Friday and will run until Sunday this week - so why not get into the spirit by taking in some jazz at these excellent venues across the capital.

Vortex, Dalston

Vortex started life as a jazz club back in the late 1980s when music fans poured into Stoke Newington’s Church Street, creating an electric vibe.

That atmosphere relocated with the not-for-profit club to its new home at Gillett Square in 2005.  

Throughout this year's London Jazz Festival, the club will host a selection of talented artists from across Europe, including Finnish jazz guitarist Niklas Winter and Norwich trumpet duo Some Things - see the website for full listings.

Ronnie Scott’s, Soho

Located in the heart of Soho, Ronnie Scott’s is arguably London's most famous jazz venue, with a host of legendary musicians gracing its stage since it opened in 1959.

See the full listings for the London Jazz Festival on the club's website - but be sure to book in advance, as several shows are already sold out.
