Following our first successful edition in 2016, we return to our mission of showcasing original jazz/improv influenced sounds composed by some of the most talented young musicians in the London scene.

This year will feature really exciting music premieres to be registered for on our #jazznewbloodALIVE compilation, traditionally released at the following #jazzday.

To wrap around our activities during EFG London Jazz Festival, we are curating a Photo Exhibition at our venue - IKLECTIK- called "JAZZFUTURENOW" - featuring LIVE CONCERT photos of talented young musicians in action, from our Jazznewblood archive and other guest photographers, like Steve Funky Feet. This Exhibition is a tribute to Benjamin Amure.
