The Jazz Meet is London's newest live jazz event that, in it's is the previous incarnations, has been a mainstay of the London jazz scene for several years now. Held down by a core of talented musicians and featuring an ever-increasing pool of session players, vocalists, DJs and special guests who can be called upon to add that extra bit of individual spice to each occasion, the event over the years has graced many of London’s finest venues, including Proud Galleries, Vibe Bar, The Shoreditch and Favela London.
Celebrating the true diversity of the jazz in scene, The Jazz Meet’s aim is simple - to help keep the spirit of live jazz and it's many sub-genres alive within the capital. With regular outings where collaboration, improvisation, rediscovery and most importantly a good groove are key, you can expect to hear a range of sounds from the past and present, whether it be during one of the many weekly band sessions, or during the intervals when resident DJs and guests step up to grace the turntables with their most recent unearthed vinyl gems. As well as the house band, we regularly feature some of London's established and up and coming jazz ensembles in the monthly guest spot. Recent guests have included The Greg Foat Group, Caractacus the Conga Conqueror and the Afro Latin Ensemble, GRAM and The Jason Simpson Quintet.
