About the Event

The second wave of new jazzers are just around the corner. Right under Moses Boyd, Theon Cross and Nubya Garcia stands a generation that promise to take the baton and evolve the form, just like grime picked up from garage. “Each lot that come through are better,” says Janine Irons. “They’re getting better earlier. They’re inspiring more young people. We’re getting this explosion now.”

Specifically, from Tomorrow’s Warriors a standout new player in the shape of teenage trumpeter Ife Ogunjobi. “He’s the new leader, he’s the new Moses [Boyd],” says Gary Crosby. “He’s a young kid from down South London and he’s got it all.”
