Last night we went along to check out Brixton’s newest bar, The Junction, located on Coldharbour Lane, a short walk from Loughborough Junction railway station.

With the bar run by current/former professional musicians, it’s no surprise that their Tuesday night jazz jam featured some very accomplished players.

The Jazz Jam session takes place every Tuesday, and starts at 8pm through to 11pm, and all instruments are welcome.

There’s “no messing about with house bands for the first hour,” says the website, with the jam moving “straight on stage with who ever is first there.”

The house band consists of Luke Fowler on double bass, Paul Canton on drums and Ross Anderson on guitar.
