We are thrilled to see Black Mountain Jazz and 47 Studios & Productions featured in Wales Art Review…

“Wales continues to help guide UK jazz musicians through the privations of Covid, with Black Mountain Jazz organising its Wall2Wall Festival 2021 for the second year running as a ‘virtual’ event. Nigel Jarrett has been watching, and listening to, the results.

Take a bow Mark Viveash, Sean McGowen, Julian Miles, and Geraint Jones of 47 Studios & Productions. Without their filming of the event, the second virtual Wall2Wall Jazz Festival at Abergavenny wouldn’t have taken place this year with such sure compatibility of sound and vision.

Despite the pandemic, Black Mountain Jazz went ahead with its annual festival in 2020 by contracting Viveash and his team to film musicians in the summer at its Melville Centre base in the town, editing the results with BMJ director Mike Skilton and streaming them as separate videos. Viveash & Co. took on this year’s festival as well.”
