NYJO www.nyjo.org.uk is a 22 piece band with 2 vocalists which can be enjoyed by non-jazz audiences as well as jazz aficionados, a truly uplifting celebration of the jazz orchestra sound from a band of under 25 year olds, many of whom are destined to become the next UK jazz generation.

Much of NYJO's music is written specially for the orchestra by British composers, including past and present members of NYJO. Celebrating 50 years in the business in 2015, NYJO can boast an enormous repertoire that covers the decades and a wide variety of styles, thanks to its founder musical director and life president, Bill Ashton, OBE.
