For almost a decade, Jazz Steps Live at the Libraries has been bringing world class live gigs to library audiences across Nottinghamshire. And while we may not be able to tour this wonderful programme physically at the moment, we believe that the show must go on . . . virtually! Jazz Steps and Inspire are working with renowned jazz artists to bring you specially recorded music sessions, fascinating interviews and playlists, for you to enjoy at home.
We'll be updating this page regularly, so do check back for more. . .
