Christian Scott at EFG London jazz festival
Almost a quarter of a century old, the EFG London Jazz Festival is comfortable in its reputation as one the finest jazz events in the world, yet it shows no signs of slowing down or resting on its many laurels. One of the highlights this year will be the ever-inventive and relentlessly curious, trumpeter Christian Scott (Wednesday 16th at Scala) combining instruments ancient and modern, acoustic and electronic — and some completely new — in a genre-splitting new vision of where jazz can travel. Following his genre-melting set at last year’s Festival, Scott returns with a new band, new album, and new sound. efglondonjazzfestival.org.uk

Drop wine app
Ian Campell and Will Palmer, the team behind The 10 Cases wine bar and bistrot in Covent Garden have launched their own wine delivery service. Drop is a wine deliver app that takes quality, affordable, expertly handpicked wines and delivers them to your door. The bespoke service will deliver wines via electric bike anywhere within zones one and two, with no minimum order and only a nominal delivery charge if you require it within the hour. Prices begin at £7.50 a bottle and just to sugarcoat and already sweet deal, you can also order cheese, bread, smoked salmon and charcuterie. Users can select from over 150 by entering their preferred colour, price range and style of wine, or simply by occasion before choosing from Drop's suggestions.
