Nine-piece from the National Youth Jazz Orchestra.

The NYJO Nonet consists of the very best past and present members of the National Youth Jazz Orchestra.

The Nonet is a showcase for some of the most talented young jazz musicians working in the UK, all of whom have progressed through the NYJO family with a focus on small-group improvisation, playing compositions and arrangements by current end ex-members of NYJO. The Nonet has established a reputation for consummately skilful performances, inspiring soloing and wonderful “cool school” arrangements.

The line-up is big enough to create a powerful ensemble but small enough to allow the interaction and empathy which is the hallmark of small-group jazz performance. The band has appeared throughout the UK at clubs, theatres and festivals, including the City of London and London Jazz Festivals, The Barnes Music Festival and the House of Commons.
