Not for profit Jazz re:freshed is a small but relentlessly determined organization. The core of our mission is to globally elevate, amplify and spotlight the breadth of expression in UK Jazz, while breaking down the boundaries for audiences to access the music. We have a forte for spotting talent and with our small not for profit record label have already had some success in supporting the launch of Ashley Henry, Richard Spaven and Nubya Garcia’s recording careers and in 2019 secured a Mercury Prize Album of the Year nomination for Cassie Kinoshi’s SEED ensemble debut release, Driftglass.

Our weekly residency is our foundation. Now in its 17th year and being mentioned in almost all UK Jazz media articles as one of the key venues for opportunity and talent discovery. Our 2nd flagship activity is our annual one day festival, JAZZ RE:FEST now in its 8th year and receiving award nominations. The project that has really contributed to changing the UK Jazz landscape on a global scale, is our international showcasing project launched in 2017, JAZZ RE:FRESHED OUTERNATIONAL. It featured artists including Shabaka Hutchings, Nubya Garcia, Ashley Henry, Moses Boyd, Ezra Collective, Sarathy Korwar, Gogo Penguin, Nerija, Joe Armon Jones, Sarah Tandy, Blue Lab Beats, Kokoroko & Steam Down – in short many of the artists now enjoying healthy spotlight and some as a direct result of their showcases.
