"Jazz In The Round are leading the charge of new British jazz" - Jazzwise
Every last Monday of the month JAZZ IN THE ROUND gather the finest musicians and throws them together in a barrier busting night of contemporary music.
With Jez Nelson & Chris Phillips from Jazz FM.
Doors 7pm, with DJs in the bar.
Jazz In The Round set out to provide an open platform to reflect and promote the brilliance, beauty and innovation of contemporary jazz in London. Starting life as this monthly night of barrier busting jazz at The Cockpit, Jazz In the Round has grown.
Jazz In The Round now hosts a regular stage at Love Supreme, hosts events each year for the London Jazz Festival, and hosts Emergence Festival, our annual 3 day festival in Hastings.
Plus, with the support of Arts Council England, Jazz In The Round now records all the emerging artists that play at Jazz In the Round. These recordings are then played out by Jazz FM
