The Cinematic Live Sessions

ConnectsMusic are excited to feature New Generation Jazz, who since 2015 have been dedicated to promoting the finest young British jazz artists to the wider community. Kicking off this week we’re announcing their Cinematic Live Sessions and what’s coming up!



New Generation Jazz

Based out of the multiple award nominated Verdict Jazz Club in Brighton, NGJ has presented five years’ worth of gigs and workshops by the brightest and best of the UK’s emerging jazz scene, at a time when more young UK artists are making headlines than ever before.

NGJ have worked with an incredible breadth of talent including Ezra Collective, Nerijá, Seed Ensemble, Nye Banfield, Jonny Mansfield’s Elftet, Sam Leak, Xhosa Cole, Alex Hitchcock, Tom Barford, Mark Kavuma’s Banger Factory, Misha Mullov Abbado, Camilla George, Ife Ogunjobi, Rob Luft, Ashley Henry, Alexandra Ridout and many many more. They have also partnered with Soundcrash and Kemp Town Carnival to create stage takeovers, launched their own Summer School and continued to work with Love Supreme to programme the ever-popular Bandstand Stage.


Building on the success of their 2020 programme of cinematic quality livestreams, NGJ invited six of the best young players into their TV studio to create a series of high quality, 30 minute concert videos.

Each of artist also contributed to a series of short instructional clips (see last week’s voti on the NGJ FORUM), giving out advice and insights into their own approach to creating music, and making this available to the people to spread the word far and wide.

Each concert video will be livestreamed on Facebook Live and Youtube Live on New Generation Jazz pages.
