A festival experience, in celebration of the saxophone through concerts, film, workshops and more.Bringing together lovers of the saxophone, worldwide musicians, music fans and students alike. This pioneering festival is for Londoners and visitors to celebrate, appreciate and learn more about the saxophone.

The series of concerts will include performances from GRAMMY winning artists Bob Reynolds of the widely celebrated jazz and funk collective Snarky Puppy, and Casey Benjamin of hip-hop inspired outfit The Robert Glasper Experiment. MOBO award winning saxophonist YolanDa Brown will be performing her delicious fusion of reggae, jazz and soul, and BBC Young Musician Of The Year Alexander Bone will also be bringing his outstanding ability to the stage.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
