Just three weeks remain until this year’s Love Supreme Jazz Festival returns to Glynde Place in East Sussex for a three-day event jam packed with performances from a diverse cross section of jazz, soul and pop talent.

The festival’s Jazz Lounge will also return this year offering exclusive screenings of the award-winning John Coltrane documentary ‘Chasing Trane’ and Gregory Porter’s ‘Don’t Forget Your Music’ as well as several Ella Fitzgerald-themed events to coincide with the centenary of the legendary singer’s birth including a Q&A with Mica Paris about her new Ella project.
