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 NGJ TV: The Forum 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.
NGJ TV: The Forum!
Throughout the last year, New Generation Jazz have kept connection strong and flowing between their artists, their audiences, and the next generation of aspiring players who are taking their first steps into jazz.
Each of NGJ’s artists have contributed an episode to their Forum series: a set of educational video shorts, inspired by the Jazz At The Lincoln Centre youtube channel, where each artist explains a vital aspect of their own musical practice.
Tune in to learn directly from the likes of Mark Kavuma, Reuben Fox, Quinn Oulton, Cherise Adams-Burnett and many others!
