NATIONAL YOUTH JAZZ ORCHESTRA

Presents

What is Hip?

NYJO is a glittering showcase for the UK’s finest young professional jazz musicians, combining a hard-swinging rhythm section and a raft of hugely talented soloists, to bring you the very best in British big-band jazz. Under the Artistic Direction of Mark Armstrong, the 23-piece orchestra perform around 40 concerts a year nationally and internationally, and aim to inspire the next generation of young jazz musicians with education work wherever they tour. Over its 52-year history, NYJO has helped launch the careers of many of the country’s most renowned jazz musicians including Guy Barker, Amy Winehouse, Mark Nightingale and Laura Jurd.

Tonight’s ‘What is Hip?’ programme is music to make you move. From the Forties to the Noughties, classic tunes by Duke Ellington rub shoulders with hits from Kylie Minogue, Kool & The Gang and Tower of Power in this eclectic tour of the history of groove.
