“Jazz in the UK is in a really healthy state. Week by week I hear strong CDs and see excellent gigs and it's coming from all directions - Free music, electronica, more mainstream things, dance music and big bands.

There are scores of excellent players coming out of colleges but still great things are rising up from underground scenes. Plus we're still lucky to be able to hear great legends of UK jazz who started out in the 60's as well as new artists just finding their feet. We want to reflect and mix all of this.” Jez Nelson


Every month our artist in residence Gina Southgate is in space painting the action as it happens.
You can see her work on display in our foyer, view it on her website, and of course watch her painting live on the night.

To keep your jazz juices flowing in the time before our 2015 return, why not check out this video from the first ever JAZZ IN THE ROUND night.

For The Cockpit, Jazz In The Round has reinvented an iconic event.
Forty years ago Humprey Burton broadcast T. Rex, among others, from the iconic seventies theatre off Marylebone’s Lisson Grove as part of the London Weekend Television Music In The Round series (Video p.1 - Video p.2).
