NERIJA SPREAD THE WORD

New Generation Jazz were delighted to kick off 2016 in fine style with the second of their collaborations with the Tomorrow’s Warriors group; the hotly-tipped Nerija.

In the afternoon, altoist Cassie Kinochi and bassist Inge Eichler, accompanied by piano star and Zara MacFarlane collaborator Peter Edwards, paid a visit to Dorothy Stringer Secondary School to present a workshop to 30 extremely excited students. Thanks are due to Mr Andy Barbour and Mr Pete Davison for co-ordinating this event so successfully with the Stringer music department – the gospel of jazz was spread to some very promising young players.

Expectations were high for the evening show and Nerija more than fulfilled them. Playing a selection of material from their upcoming EP release, the girls showed why they’re making waves across the jazz community with their free-flowing soulful sound, with Nubya Garcia especially impressing on tenor sax.
