Stimulating that NYJO (the National Youth Jazz Orchestra) have completely changed their artistic profile since the fairly stuffy days of Bill Ashton who nonetheless got the whole thing going in the first place! The key seems to be eclecticism, so on the one hand there is the pop appeal of Amy Winehouse whose songs NYJO are touring at the moment, the hugely contrasting avant side as exemplified by concerts at Cafe Oto recently playing the music of John Zorn. And look for next year they will be collaborating with the great Brazilian composer Hermeto Pascoal with a date listed for May at London's Barbican. Pascoal has deeply influenced leading UK musicians such as the great Welsh pianist Huw Warren and leading educator guitarist-violinist Stuart Hall to name but a few. This new exposure passes the baton to generations still further on.
