NYJO’s annual residency at Ronnie Scott’s has been one of the highlights of our calendar for many years. For young musicians to have the opportunity to perform at one of the world’s most famous jazz clubs at such an early stage of their careers is a gift.
Not only will they play to a packed house of family, friends and jazz fans but they will herald the arrival on the scene of some of the next generation of UK jazz talent.
This year promises to yield some exciting projects for NYJO, beginning at Ronnie’s with the premier of 2 specially commissioned pieces by one of the UKs best known jazz figures, Julian Joseph (above left). The programme will also feature the work of NYJO members and classics from the canon of great big band jazz writing.
