NYO Jazz | China | July-August 2019
Jul 2019 - Aug 2019

Introduction

Following a hugely successful inaugural tour in 2018, NYO Jazz is back on the road in 2019, for their first performances in Asia. Trumpeter Sean Jones returns as bandleader alongside renowned jazz singer Kurt Elling.

NYO Jazz gives outstanding young jazz musicians from across the country the opportunity to perform as cultural ambassadors on an international stage, sharing a uniquely American musical genre with cultures around the world through an international tour.

NYO Jazz’s 2019 programme will include works by Dizzy Gillespie, Don Ellis, Thad Jones and Mary Lou Williams, new works by composers Ayn Inserto (commissioned by Carnegie Hall) and Jihye Lee, plus new arrangements by Igmar Thomas (bandleader and music director for Lauryn Hill and Nas) and American trombonist Wycliffe Gordon.
