To The Jazz Bar With Love

Celebrating 15 years of The Jazz Bar!

The new album has arrived! Get your copy here!

This musical care-package was compiled and arranged by vocalist Ali Affleck during the Coronavirus Pandemic, to help support The Jazz Bar through an extended lockdown period.

We celebrate the anniversary of our opening with closed doors in 2020, but we are truly honoured and humbled by the love and support that has been shown to us in these tough times. This album marks 15 years of The Jazz Bar and stands as a reflection of the impeccable, vibrant local jazz scene that has developed in that time.

The compilation digital album is comprised of 23 stunning tracks from some of the top names of the formidable Scottish jazz scene. These tracks were professionally recorded by the individual artists prior to the Coronavirus outbreak and generously donated to The Jazz Bar for this project.

We hope to be able to re-open soon so that we can continue showcasing Scotland’s world-class music scene. In the meantime, we hope that this album can shine some light in these difficult times.

Thank you so very much to all those who donated, and to the fans who purchased.
We are truly touched by your generosity and support.

You can continue to support us and the professional musicians who are struggling right now, by donating what you might usually spend on an entry fee or a drink, or any other amount that you wish. Professional musicians and all hospitality/event staff are facing an incredibly difficult time, having seen months of steady work disappear over-night. Any donations would be extremely appreciated to help us to continue to pay our staff through our closure and support our local event staff community in any way that we can.
