theJazz flies to Toronto

Digital-only station theJazz has teamed with Jazz Services to showcase the best of British jazz talent at January’s International Association of Jazz Education conference in Toronto. Highlights of the event will be broadcast on Helen Mayhew's evening show.

A showcase concert on January 10, Brit Jazz Breaks Out, is one of the highlights of the three-day conference, which begins on January 9th. Presented by theJazz’s Courtney Pine, the concert features performances by Empirical, Martin Taylor’s Freternity, Dennis Rollins’ Bad Boy & Co. and Tommy Smith’s Youth Jazz Orchestra.

Many of the concerts are being recorded by theJazz for broadcast in the week beginning January 14. Helen Mayhew will be interviewing some of the musicians from Toronto and will feature a round-up of performances, plus news and reports from the conference in her Saturday afternoon show on January 19.

Speaking about the station’s involvement with the initiative, Darren Henley, Managing Director of theJazz said: “We are 100% committed to supporting our great British jazz talent. There are a remarkable number of British jazz musicians playing gigs every night of year in clubs, theatres and pubs across the country. As the UK’s only national jazz radio station, we believe we have a duty to do whatever we can to share this great music with listeners across the UK and around the globe.”
