NYJO Nonet

The NYJO Nonet is made up of past and present members of The National Youth Jazz Orchestra under the age of 25. Led by tenor saxophonist Tom Stone, the NYJO Nonet is a showcase for some of the most talented young jazz musicians working in the UK, all of whom have progressed through the NYJO family.

With a focus on small-group improvisation, it plays compositions and arrangements by current and ex-members of NYJO.

The Nonet has established a reputation for performing with consummate skill, inspired soloists, and wonderful ‘cool-school’ arrangements.

Summer 2012 gigs included City of London Festival and Pizza Express Jazz Club. Autumn 2012 appearances included the Bull’s Head at Barnes with Dave O’Higgins as part of the London Jazz Festival.

The band holds a bi-monthly residency at the Bulls Head.
