About Free Jazz Fridays: Tomorrow's Warriors x Music for Youth Takeover

Tomorrow's Warriors Junior Band is an exciting new line-up of musicians aged 14-16, featuring some of the most promising musicians on Tomorrow's Warriors' award-winning Young Artist Development Programme. The band are closely mentored by Rosie Turton - one of the finest trombonists on the London scene - as well as Dian Gasper, Axel Kaner-Lidstrom, and Gary Crosby OBE.

Whilst following the lineage of jazz music from learning standards and compositions in the jazz canon, they put their own unique mark on the music as a band through new arrangements of these songs.
