Policy Statement

This event is being organised by a local committee of musicians and jazz fans.

Our aim is to promote jazz on the Isle of Wight. Members of the committee will not receive any financial reward. Inspected accounts will be made on request.

The committee will cover the cost of the main venues and headline acts. This will be funded by sponsorship, ticket sales and other fund-raising activities.

Any subsequent profits will go towards funding future events and a donation to charity (IW Mountbatten Hospice).

We will encourage other performances during the period. However, we will not act as agents. It will be the responsibility of the performers and venues to negotiate between themselves.

Paul Sawtell

Paul is both an accomplished pianist and vibraphone player. He favours the musical sophistication of the first half of the 20th century, numbers composed by such as Gershwin, Porter and Kern amongst others.

Paul has played keyboards and vibes in this and a previous life - well, in the early 1980s at any rate when he did many recording sessions for radio and television as well as jazz club work.

There was then a 22 year non-vibe interlude, but having taken up the instrument again in 2010 Paul has concentrated on jazz, re-creating the George Shearing quintet sound and working with other top soloists.
