She studied jazz at the Guildhall School of Music and was the flute chair for the National Youth Jazz Orchestra.

Rebecca Nash presents ‘Redefining Element 78’ – feat Nick Malcolm on trumpet.

Her music blends bold melodies with electronic elements and grooves, placing them within ethereal harmonic soundscapes. The suite, a collection of eight pieces, is curiously centred around precious metals;: Platinum, Osmium, Rhodium, Iridium, Ruthenium, and Palladium. The music’s excitement comes from a creative tension between detailed through-composed sections and large swathes of free improvisation.

Maddy Coombs is a tenor saxophone player based in London, and her band has been playing together for a long time in various different forms after first meeting through Tomorrow’s Warriors classes when they were younger. The band offers a unique sound
taking inspiration from lots of different music that they love, but mostly jazz.
