After a trio of sell-out shows from February to April brought 2018 in with a bang, NEW GENERATION JAZZ are proud to present our programme for the Summer. Between May and July we’ve got three more of the most exciting young acts in the UK coming to the Verdict, to deliver a two-set gig in Brighton’s only purpose-built jazz club, preceded by a free, open-access workshop. In May we’ve got internationally recognised sax virtuoso Sam Eagles with his acclaimed Spirit project, featuring his equally killing brother Duncan; June brings us South London trombone sensation Rosie Turton, taking a break from frontline duties in the mighty Nerija to propagate her own brand of multi-cultural jazz mashup; and in July we’ve got super-hip young trumpeter Mark Kavuma with his aptly named Banger Factory – an allstar band of the hottest, most hard-swinging players around.
Summer is especially busy time for us as we’ll also be returning to Love Supreme Festival, in charge of their Bandstand and Friday Night Arena programming. Returning for the fifth year, we always have an amazing time here with the LSF crew, and it’s such a treat to be able to feature some of our favourite players from New Generation and elsewhere on the Bandstand and Arena stages. If you’re at Love Supreme this year, drop by and say hi!
