Jam Experiment are a young jazz quintet that are based in London. They won the 2014 Jazz North Introduces Scheme, shortly after their debut gig supporting Liane Carroll. They have played at leading jazz festivals across the UK, leaving audiences in awe. The lineup includes the winner of the inaugural BBC Young Musician Jazz Award, saxophonist Alexander Bone, trombonist Rory Ingham, Toby Comeau on piano/keyboard, Joe Lee on bass, and Jonny Mansfield on drums. Alexander Bone and trombonist Rory Ingham were both voted as runners-up in the best instrumentalist (respectively) of the year in the British Jazz Awards 2016, and both were nominated for Rising Star in the 2016 British Jazz Awards, with Alexander Bone crowned Rising Star. The band are now based in London, studying at the Royal Academy of Music and the Guildhall School of Music & Drama. Jam Experiment display a fresh, energetic and honest approach of original compositions and arrangements. All band members write music for the band and contribute musical ideas equally, creating a beautifully varied set of music, and a very individual, cool and funky sound.
