The 2017 London Jazz Festival was held November 10 through 19, with more than 350 performances at 60 venues around the city. The photographer Paul Wood was there to capture many of the special shows happening in the city, including sets by Dee Dee Bridgewater, Harold Mabern, Christian Scott,  John Surman, Chris Potter and others.

Sadiq Khan, the mayor of London, issued this statement about the festival: “Culture is in the DNA of London, and live music makes a vital contribution to the life and soul of the city. I would encourage everyone to explore the city fully and take part in London’s vibrant music scene this autumn. Great international festivals such as the EFG London Jazz Festival show that London is open to creativity and to people from across the world.”
