NYJO Academy Foyles Jazz Jam w/ Janette Mason
Sunday 28th October
Foyles Bookshop Charing Cross
Another instalment of our fantastically successful NYJO Jazz Jam, led by contemporary pianist/keyboardist Janette Mason’s Red Alert ensemble, plus the opportunity for young musicians to get up and play with the professionals.
Janette Mason – Piano and Synthesizers
Chris Morris – Drums
Tom Mason – Bass
Red Alert is pianist Janette Mason’s explosive new trio and a platform for her unique contemporary jazz compositions which have been compared to the cutting edge work of EST and The Bad Plus. Bringing together the dynamic rhythm section of Chris Morris and Tom Mason for this performance, this is cutting edge jazz for a new generation.
Whatever your instrument or ability; this is the perfect opportunity to feel at home with a pro! These sessions are open to all under 18’s—parents, passers-by and jazz fans are all welcome to stay and enjoy the music. The musicians will kick-start the session with a set at midday, then the floor will open to all those who want to jam*.
*Pianos, drums and double bass will be provided
