NYJO Receives Rave Review from Jazzwise

February 15, 2017 by  

NYJO’s recent residency at Ronnie Scott’s received a glowing review in the March issue of Jazzwise magazine. Peter Vacher praised the band for its innovative approach and varied programme, described as “crowd-pleasing in the best way”.

NYJO has never been conformist, never hewing to one particular line, never known for fawning replications and very deliberately these days a vehicle for new possibilities.

Special mention was made to the band’s singers, Ellie Bignall and Freddie Benedict, and solos from Alexandra Ridout on flugelhorn, trombonist Tom Dunnett and alto saxophonist Sam Glaser.

The review closes with the line “Bravo NYJO and bravo Ronnie Scott’s”. Judging from the standing ovations on the night, this sentiment was shared by everyone in the room!
