LEAP Alumni deliver projects across the country, engaging new audiences
17th Jan 2020
This month’s announcement sees yet more world-class talent heading to London in November. With a particular focus on the strength of the European scene, we present Rusconi, Jef Neve, Alexander Hawkins and Marcin Masecki - pianists pushing at the boundaries of traditional piano-led jazz.
The integral place occupied by UK artists within this scene is highlighted with large-scale produced projects from Nikki Iles with the Royal Academy of Music Big Band, Phil Meadows’ stunning new Engines Orchestra, Robert Mitchell’s Invocation – including Panacea, the Bournemouth Symphony Chorus and Goldsmiths’ (Big) Strings – and a special celebration of 100 years of the life of Coleridge Goode, led by Gary Crosby.
Two new family friendly matinees are announced – Supersonics and Family Jazz All Stars featuring Juliet Kelly.
Our announcement is completed by four heavyweight jazz masters Charles Lloyd, Henri Texier and a special Joe Lovano and Dave Douglas tribute to Wayne Shorter.
