Set in the beautiful landscape of Moseley's private park in Birmingham the festival bring an eclectic weekend of music with a whole host of international and local artists.
Over the last 10 years and more the festival organisers have forged together their own eclectic mix of Jazz, Funk and Soul. Although the lineup sometimes strays outside these genres, they have never compromised with the quality of music on the bill. Mostly Jazz has become a true community event, where family and friends of all ages and background can get together.

The daughter of painter Moki Cherry and West African percussionist Amadu Jah, Neneh was raised by her mother and stepfather Don Cherry, the celebrated jazz trumpeter and global music pioneer. Not surprising that she made her career in music. A member of ska punk band The Nails and briefly all-girl punk outfit The Slits, Neneh made her name as vocalist with funk-punks Rip Rig & Panic. In 1987, she launched her solo career with the single Buffalo Stance, the rest is history. Hit albums and hit singles quickly followed, and further established Neneh as a critically acclaimed singer and songwriter.
