Institute of Composing Journal Issue #6

Rants are an Institute of Composing tradition of lively short speeches of trenchant views and incisive critique from invited guests, which are then debated by everyone in attendance.  Wednesday 18th November 2015 saw the second annual Jazz Rants, held at Club Inégales as part of the EFG London Jazz Festival.  It was a lively evening that very much lived up to the billing with entertaining polemical speeches on topics, hotly debated.  This edition of our online journal brings you edited versions of five of the Rants given that night. Each rant contains nuggets of home truths, but as Tony Whyton (who co-refereed the evening with me) said in concluding his opening salvo: “Sit back, relax, enjoy these Jazz Rants and please don’t take this lineup too seriously!”
