Jazz Scotland

Scotland has a strong jazz tradition and has produced many world-class musicians since the 1950s, notably Jimmy Deuchar, Bobby Wellins and Joe Temperley. Perhaps the best known contemporary Scottish jazz musician is Tommy Smith. The Edinburgh Jazz and Blues Festival brings some of the best jazz musicians in the world to Scotland every year, as do other international jazz festivals held in Glasgow, Dundee and elsewhere.
