Her career is studded with high profile collaborations, which have seen her record and perform with the likes of Radiohead, Lee ‘Scratch’ Perry, Transglobal Underground, Susheela Raman, Tarek Yamani, Amel Zen, including a world tour with These New Puritans. As a guest soloist and composer, Yazz has performed with Arturo O’Farrill’s Afro Cuban Jazz Orchestra, Cambridge University Jazz Orchestra, NYJO, NYOS, and the Guildhall School of Music & Drama Jazz Orchestra.

Her latest album, Polyhymnia, released by Ropeadope Records, builds on her growing reputation as a notable composer with a strong individual voice, a figure at the heart of the exciting UK scene. The album is conceived as a message to the world about the history and growing empowerment of women and consists of a series of powerful tributes to noted women in history, whose stories resonated and inspired Yazz.

Yazz has been nominated for Jazz FM ‘Live Jazz Act of The Year’, Downbeat Magazine’s ‘Trumpet Artist of The Year’ and featured in the ‘Rising Star Trumpet’ category in this year’s Downbeat critics’ poll.

This will be a socially distanced show where audience members can only sit within their own bubbles. Seating is unreserved.
