“Just as the primary genre it supports, from very important initial connections and in a relatively short space of time it has developed into a great forum facilitating fantastic creativity (in the U.K. and further afield) and it continues to expand and evolve. This should be encouraged as it benefits all involved with every aspect of the music.”

Jason Yarde

“ConnectsMusic/JazzConnects is one of the most comprehensive places on the net for Jazz Promo. The Ivors Academy was represented at leading jazz trade fair, Jazz Ahead, held annually in Bremen, having been invited to join the ground-breaking UK organisation ConnectsMusic/JazzConnects, setup by Emily Saunders. A huge thank you to Emily for making it happen and including so many Academy members, commissioners & potential members.”
