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 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 and has established a reputation for performing with consummate skill, inspired soloists and wonderful ‘cool-school’ arrangements.
To celebrate NYJO’s 50th Anniversary, the Nonet is presenting an entirely new series of gigs, featuring the music of the great legends of jazz (Basie, Coltrane, Davis & Ellington), at the Bulls Head during 2015 . See the Gigs Calendar for further information.
