Jazz North is the development agency for jazz in the North of England.

Our mission is to increase the profile of contemporary jazz in the North by developing opportunities for artists and building audiences through collective partnership working. 

Our vision is that the North becomes recognised nationally and internationally as a place that enables jazz artists to reside, work and develop their practice in dialogue with interested, supportive and open-minded audiences.

  • Artists and their work will be presented to appreciative listening audiences in sympathetic environments which sustain their long term careers
