Tickets go on sale this afternoon for next month's Glasgow Jazz Festival.

The Buster Williams quartet featuring Lenny White, Ryan Quigley, JTQ, Georgia Cécile, Ebi Soda, the Binker Golding quintet, Anita Wardell, Paul Booth's Trypl (joined by among others cult latin-jazz piano star Alex Wilson), Paul Towndrow's trio, Fergus McCreadie playing solo, Brian Kellock, Marianne McGregor, top, winner of the 2021 best vocalist category at the Scottish Jazz Awards, and Matt Carmichael are among the 2022 line-up.

Scarcely off our player and returning for even more time spent with it Blink is the latest from highly original singer and composer Brigitte Beraha with her Lucid Dreamers band.

As previously noted the songs are very strong, certainly poetic and allowing lots of space for interplay between voice and soloing instrument, are partly composed and partly the result of improv sessions. Beraha is with saxist George Crowley, pianist Alcyona Mick and drummer Tim Giles.

It's easily one of the best vocals-led jazz achievements so far this year and even more interesting because it is so honest and adventurous, that latter quality not always evident in a field often littered with wannabe showbiz retro-indulgent crooner cosplay no matter how good the results turn out.

  • Lucid Dreamers play the Vortex, London tomorrow night and Blink is out on 20 May
