Matt Fripp and the business of jazz

In addition to being a high art form, jazz is a subset of show business and part of show business is “business.”

In this interview with industry insider Matt Fripp, we talk about what goes into building a touring career: agents… festivals…club bookers…clever ways to get a great-looking video on the cheap… and how to put it all together to make it happen.

If you have a jazz friend who dreams of touring especially the European festival circuit (Matt has special expertise in this area) make sure they know about this interview.
