Jazz Composition

After sampling a number of pieces that demonstrate ways in which various jazz composers have generated musical environments that inspire the creativity of their performing jazz musicians  and examining the ways in which these composers have communicated their ideas, this group collectively set itself similar challenges to finding their own ways to best communicate their ideas to the co-members of their ensemble, within the constraints of a 3 minute piece. Led by Issie Barratt.

Maya Austin, Oliver Brooks, Nathaniel Coxon, Adam Crossley, Leon Davies, Josh James, Torsten Jensen, Billy Marrows, Kyle McClatchey, Chris Mayall, Tom Rigby, James Taylor, Rosie Turton, Oliver Vibrans, Stephen Ward, Oliver Wheeler
