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.

The Ronnie Scott's All Stars are comprised of some of  the greatest talents on the U.K scene, including some of our most regular performers James Pearson (piano), Sam Burgess (bass) and Pedro Segundo (drums)

James Pearson:-

Musical Director at Ronnie Scott’s and the owner of a ferocious piano technique coupled with a sense of musicality rarely heard, James Pearson is one of the most exciting musicians to have emerged from the U.K in the last 25 years. After working with him, the late jazz legend Sir John Dankworth declared: "James Pearson is an exceptionally gifted artist. His masterful playing makes him head and shoulders above the rest of his contemporaries. He shows signs of true greatness".

Sam Burgess:- 

Double Bass Despite only being in his early 30’s, already Sam is a stalwart of the UK jazz scene. As well as appearing on numerous film soundtracks such as 'Bridget Jones's Diary' and 'Hannibal'.
