Jazz musicians took to the stage in Ipswich for a series of "outstanding" shows.
This year’s Ipswich Jazz Festival, dedicated to the memory of local jazz enthusiast, guitarist and Ipswich Hospital consultant haematologist, Dr Nick Dodd who died last September, has been declared a "success".
Organiser Neil Bateman, who is also a welfare rights adviser, said: "Artistically it has been outstanding.
"The musicians have been really appreciative to have a live audience in an extremely lean year.
"It's been a resounding success. I'm very pleased with it."
Alina Hip Harp from Alina Bzhezhinska created a unique sound on the harp with effect pedals and electronics, supported by Mikele Montolli (bass), Adam Teixeira (drums) and Joel Prime (percussion).
Mr Bateman described her style of jazz as being like "something from another dimension".
