My name is Mary James and I am a jazz enthusiast and artist manager. I am member of the UK Jazz Promotion Network and regular contributor to London Jazz News where I have been fortunate to interview several wonderful musicians such as John Abercrombie. I am privileged to work with a number of very special musicians. My aim is to help and encourage them to be the very best they can be. I do this in practical ways – by arranging tours, reviewing their online presence, promoting their work. I have helped with many successful grant applications and record label negotiations. I arranged a 20 date tour for Maciek Pysz in 2015, and I continue to create tours for him and other artists. I have written a number of pages for Wikipedia about jazz artists. I love the music of those I work with, and this inspires me to bring enthusiasm to everything I do.
