Some music fans may think that Irish jazz festivals begin and end with Cork in October, but a wealth of exciting jazz events happen all over the country every year.

Next week, the Galway Jazz Festival kicks into action. Acts heading west from November 20th to 23rd include Amsterdam’s excellent Eric Vloeimans Gatecrash Quartet, New York pianist Kenny Werner and The Thing with Japanese sonic pioneer Otomo Yoshihide.

Back in the capital, the Made On Mondays series highlighting new Dublin jazz projects returns to JJ Smyth’s.

Over two weeks, six new projects will be strutting their stuff, with Colm O’Hara & The Troupe, Morla and the Nick Roth Sephardic Project appearing on November 24th, with the DaveĀ  Redmond Project, the Carpio Trio and the Sensoria Band at the Aungier Street venue on December 1st.
