Nu-Age Sounds brings together eight of the current generation of artists who are taking Scottish jazz into the international arena with a group of established arrangers whose talent and nous will add weight and experience in shaping these exciting young musicians’ highly individual, contrasting yet complementary styles into a unified work of wide appeal.

Singer kitti, pianist Fergus McCreadie, saxophonists Helena Kay and Matt Carmichael, trombonist Noushy, bassist Ewan Hastie and the collectives KARMA and corto.alto are all multiple award-winners whose achievements have been recognised across the UK and Scotland and further afield.

McCreadie has added Jazz FM and Parliamentary Jazz Awards to his Scottish Album of the Year title. Hastie was the judges’ unanimous choice in the BBC Young Jazz Musician 2022 and Carmichael had the extraordinary honour of having his first album, Where Will the River Flow arranged by world-renowned saxophonist-composer Bob Mintzer for the WDR Big Band in Cologne

In Fabia Mantwill, and Florian Ross our Scottish composers’ music will be in the sensitive hands of arrangers whose commissions have included work for the Metropole Orkest, the NDR Big Band, Pat Metheny, Michael Brecker, the Boston Camerata and the American Composers Orchestra.

Welcome to the current sound of Scotland brought to you by eight of Scottish jazz’s top creative young minds via the internationally regarded Scottish National Jazz Orchestra.
