New Generation Jazz kicks off in fine style this October 30th with an appearance from Gary Crosby’s Groundation.
Gary is a major figure in the development of UK jazz, through his fine bass playing and his work as a founder of Tomorrow’s Warriors, which has incubated many of the finest players on the scene today. Groundation is his collaborative which bringing together some inspirational young players to mix up jazz and heavy progressive grooves with Afrobeat accents. It’s the perfect band to begin our gig season as it embodies everything we’re about; bringing the jazz tradition to the New generation. Gary and the band will be dropping into BIMM earlier on the day to share some of their insights and skills in a student workshop.
With our full year’s line-up nearly completed, we’re working away behind the scenes to set up as many links as we can between all the many different folks involved in playing, promoting, teaching or just enjoying jazz here in Brighton. Get in touch if you’d like to get involved!.
