Barrier busting Sounds. In The Round.
Every month, Jazz In The Round gathers at The Cockpit with 3 acts.
The opening slot is dedicated to new and emerging artists and is followed by a solo set, and then our main headliner.
As part of our dedication to supporting new and emerging artists, we record the opening set for broadcast, two Sundays later, on Jez Nelson's Sunday night show on Jazz Fm.
(All acts are subject to change)
MONDAY 24 FEBRUARY
Stan Sulzmann Quartet, Ife Ogunjobi
The Stan Sulzmann Quartet was formed by Stan for a BBC broadcast for the London Jazz Festival in 2013. Playing a mixture of Stan's original tunes and reworkings of standards, the band puts a contemporary spin on the jazz tradition
London raised trumpeter and composer, Ife Ogunjobi is one of the young rising stars of the London Jazz scene. Raised in a Nigerian household as well as growing up in South East London, his surroundings have enriched his music with various genres such as Jazz, Afrobeat, Gospel and Hip-hop. His musical concept removes the barriers between the different genres of music.
MONDAY 30 MARCH
Jazz 625 night, Robert Mitchell
In 2019 for one night only BBC 4 recreated the iconic 1960s TV show Jazz 625. The house band, led by Robert Mitchell, played classics from the era including music from Thelonious Monk, Art Blakey and Joe Harriott. In a very special March edition of Jazz In The Round, Robert regroups that great band featuring Jean Toussaint on sax, Rod Youngs on drums, Larry Bartley on bass and guest dancer Masumi Endo. The evening will also include classic Jazz 625 archive on the big screen and Jez Nelson in conversation with Jazz 625 historians and fans.

ON THE ROAD & FESTIVALS
Emergence is a new all dayer for musicians, sonic artists, producers, cross-arts collaborators and audiences. Like Jazz In The Round, Emergence happens in the round - but we often take the seats out!
It's a space for artists and audiences to come together for a standing, dance-friendly event where people can meet, experiment and make the right mistakes.
And in 2020 Emergence is going on the road.. Join the Jazz In The Round mailing list below to stay in the loop.
