Never miss another 'National Youth Jazz Orchestra (NYJO)' show
National Youth Jazz Orchestra (NYJO)
"NYJO is a glittering showcase for the country's best young musicians and known for its unique swinging big band sound which can be enjoyed by non-jazz audiences and jazz-lovers alike. They have been voted the best Big Band in the British Band Awards on no fewer than four occasions and as John Dankworth reminded us, 'Forget the word youth, this is one of the best bands you will ever hear'. They played to a sell-out audience at the launch of the redeveloped Drill Hall back in March 2004, so don't miss this opportunity to see and hear this remarkable band again!"
Info provided by the Event Organiser
NYJO is world-famous as a glittering showcase for the UK’s best young jazz musicians. Under the direction of Mark Armstrong, the orchestra deftly mixes established classics from the big band repertoire, new work by composers at the leading-edge of the art-form and special arrangements by band members. From a hard-swinging rhythm section to a raft of hugely talented young soloists, this is a band in fine form.
“Don’t believe the hype: if you seriously want to hear the best of what’s to come, check out the many NYJO projects… The National Youth Jazz Orchestra [is] a vibrant, diverse collective of bands that give voice to all that’s different, young and exciting in Brit jazz.” Jazzwise Magazine, Who to Look Out For in 2016.
