Art Themen, who needs no introduction to Jazz Hastings regulars, is now recognised as one of the greatest players this country has produced.

That he has achieved his present high standing in the jazz world while at the same time pursuing his medical career as a consultant surgeon, is testimony to his remarkable gifts.

Laura Jurd at 23 is widely considered to be the most creative and original composer and trumpet player to have emerged in years. She was the winner of the prestigious Dankworth prize for composition at only 19 and, at the age of 21, the first woman in twenty 20 years to take the Worshipful Company of Musicians’ jazz award.

‘Jurd stretches critics and musicians’ repertoire of superlatives’ said The Guardian
