LondonJazz has had nearly 1.2 million page-views in 2012. The most-read page was the one which brought the biggest shock, the news of the death of Abram Wilson. The video above was of the second line parade in his memory through the streets of SE1 on July 25th. A foundation has been set up in his honour. Videos from May like this one bring back memories of how sudden it all was.
There have been other major losses to the British scene, Pete Saberton, Tony Marsh, and these pieces have also been read by large numbers of people
Also high up in our statistics were the nominations for the Parliamentary Jazz Awards and the page listing our 56 previews and reviews of the London Jazz Festival. Plus as ever our venues list.
Most-read in December have been:
- Our news piece about the Mike Gibbs re-imagining of Pink Floyd's Dark Side of the Moon
- Liam Noble's wonderful piece about Dave Brubeck
- Chris Parker's 2012 CD Selection and the selections of of our other writers
