The National Youth Jazz Orchestra (NYJO) Nonet is made up of past and present members of the National Youth Jazz Orchestra under the age of 25. Led by tenor saxophonist Tom Stone, the NYJO Nonet is a showcase for some of the most talented young jazz musicians working in the UK, all of whom have progressed through the NYJO family. With a focus on small-group improvisation it plays compositions and arrangements by current and ex-members the NYJO. The Nonet has established a reputation for performing with consummate skill, inspired soloists, and wonderful ‘cool-school’ arrangements.
