"To catch them and record their development in images from early stages in their careers, is an ambition and a privilege";

"Jazznewblood is a wonderful organisation and community that has helped me in my journey as a professional jazz musician immensely. I have felt supported and have been able to access so many more opportunities through jazznewblood and have been able to grow so much as a musician as a result of it. Thanks to everyone at jazznewblood I am now much more developed as a young musician, composing, gigging and even recording my music have come out of the great opportunity jazznewblood have given me."

"Through the course of just over 3years #jazznewblood https://www.jazznewblood.org/about has become an integral voice/ platform within the UK/European jazz scene. A unique, vibrant organisation, showcasing and nurturing emergent young artists through a showcase events series, video and audio footage and photo archive. Pat Pascal’s vision and drive has created something timely, extraordinary and wonderful. Recognising all the mixing/re-imagining of different musics going on right now. Can’t praise it enough! #jazznewblood #femalejazzpower #makingjazzhappen #jazzreimagined Truly amazing. " Ruth Herbert
"Jazz Newblood has described its mission as being “nurturing youth jazz talent”. , a function it undertakes supremely well. These showcase events offer young musicians an opportunity to demonstrate their talents to appreciative audiences in a comfortable and relaxed venue with good acoustics and lighting. It represents a chance to shine and many of the artists featured here have gone to bigger things." Ian Mann (thejazzmann.com)
"This was an inspiring #jazznewblood show at IKLECTIK - three upbeat and varied sets by young artists - Kasia Kawalek5tet Romarna Campbell Blan(c)anvas and the impressive jazz-grime collective Nihilism.
All three bands were led (or co-led in the case of Nihilism) by women – another sign, if one was needed, that jazz is no longer the male-dominated music form it has often been."
