About the event

BMJ Collective involves a number of talented young jazz musicians, drawn mainly from the Cardiff area. They partner Black Mountain Jazz through the year on some of its programmes and workshop projects.

This event brings together the current tutors of our latest youth project BMJazz Katz - Jack Mac (sax and vocals), Ryan Thrupp (drums) and Nick Kacal (bass). They are joined for this performance by popular guitarist Chris Cobbson.

Chris Cobbson was one of the original members of Courtney Pine’s Jazz Warriors. He has performed with many national and international musical ensembles, including Osibissa and the Ghanain jazz ensemble Baraka - bringing this ensemble to Black Mountain Jazz Club in 2023.

BMJazz Katz currently has 18 young students, with two workshops a month at Abergavenny’s Melville Centre. There is room for more if you know any interested young musicians.

This gig is part of a series, giving an opportunity to INSPIRE these young minds and see their tutors perform in the Theatre and show what is possible if you enjoy the learning journey and make the most of your chosen instrument.

This exciting event both supports our YOUTH workshop programme and provides an opportunity to enjoying some of the best of the younger generation of musicians in South Wales.

We hope to see you there!
