Jazznewblood was created in 2015 by Talent developer, artist manager, booker,
photographer, Patricia Pascal.
Our mission is to profile+support+promote the amazingly talented new generation of jazz players/bands, aged 14-24yrs, around the world with a focus on the UK and other European young talents.
We develop that mission working around image, audio and video. The most important promotion channels in an artist career.

jazznewblood Photo archive: #momentrecorder aka photographer - Patricia Pascal - uses her skill to build a dedicated promo photo archive of the jazz talent of tomorrow;
"To catch them and record their development in images from early stages in their careers, is an ambition and a privilege";
- Part of our annual festival we exhibit our collection of photos in collaboration with Steve Funky Feet and other photographers covering the Youth Scene, also to provide young talented improvisers with image tools that will help them progress and promote themselves; We also run a promo photo campaign for young musicians under 24 to give them access to low rate photo sessions.
jazznewblood #makingjazzhappen: being a young and talented musician is not easy.

jazznewblood Audio archive: We professionally record all concerts at our jazznewbloodALIVE series ( see Audio Archive Page) with the purpose of helping young talented improvisers create their own promotional audio portfolio, we will do this every year and release a #jazznewbloodALIVE compilation on the following #JazzInternatinalday. We want to develop other projects in the scope of AUDIO regarding new composition grounds, improvisation, radio, etc...focusing directly at promoting youth jazz talent, increase diversity and decrease segregation in the jazz scene. Jazz should be an important way to also increase the spirit of sharing and collaborating;
