Saxophonist Alexander Bone, the first winner of the BBC Young Jazz Musician Award in 2015, is featured in this exceptional quintet.  (The band’s trombonist Rory Ingham was also a finalist).  Alan Barnes calls them “one of the best young bands I’ve ever heard. The instrumental playing is highly accomplished, but most impressively, this is a band that swings, has great arrangements and knows how to present itself.”  London Jazz News says:  “Jam Experiment is ‘feel good’, accessible, intelligently crafted… and irresistible.”  And singer Claire Martin writes: “Their ability to connect with the audience was exceptional...bound for great things.”   Don’t miss hearing some of the best of the new generation: book early - and tell your friends…
