Patchwork Jazz Orchestra

“Patchwork Jazz Orchestra are plugged into the spirit of
the current London jazz scene, littered with talented writers and players unafraid of thinking big”
Julian Joseph

Winners of the 2015 Peter Whittingham Award, Patchwork Jazz Orchestra are a collective London-based ensemble dedicated to championing big band music in a contemporary setting. The 17-piece group made its debut at the 2014 London Jazz Festival to a sell out audience at The Forge in Camden, and since then has been turning heads with the sound of fresh original compositions written exclusively by its members. Having performed at venues from London’s Vortex Jazz Club to abroad at La Mortella in Ischia, Italy, the orchestra are setting up their own night “Patchwork” aided by the funding received from the Peter Whittingham Award.
