The clanging thought of Michael Gove dancing (as if) to the northern lights of old Aberdeen recently is exorcised completely with the return of the city's jazz festival. Fergus McCreadie, Corto.Alto and Seonaid Aitken are among the line-up at the festival on from Thursday 30 September. Pianist McCreadie, whose trio album Cairn explores a lilting very Scottish sense of frankly very unGovian ecstasy delivered with a devastating sense of flow and one of the best albums of 2021, appears with singer Irini Arabatzi. Alto saxophone great Paul Towndrow, whose bagpipetastic Deepening the River also lights up the year, also makes it up to the granite city. Fergus McCreadie, top. Photo: Edition
