Latest Project: Online Free Weekly Jazz Club
Our latest project is a weekly live online Jazz Club hosted by Francesca and Clifford which features a wide range of live music setting Jazz in a contemporary context of RnB, Hip Hop and Soul.
Guests will be invited to play at the Club in the future as we set up the streaming technology
Founded in 2001 as a non-profit community organisation the Jazz and Blues Project was funded until 2007 by two Arts Council 'Awards for All' grants and a 'Community Champions' award.
The Project ran successful workshops and open jam sessions at Norwich Arts Centre enabling a generation of new players, including award winning trumpeter Freddie Gavita, to hone their skills in a supportive and inclusive live environment.
The Project facilitated an open access and inclusive musical environment for performers and audiences of all ages and backgrounds, giving access to international, national and regional artists and workshop leaders.
From 2015 - 17 The Jazz and Blues Project conceived and ran the 'First Wednesday Club' an innovative multi-arts Jam incorporating live music, visual art, poetry, film, animation and even live ceramic creation. National, international and local artists contributed to the collaborations. This project was supported by Platform Twelve in Norwich.
