Winners of the 2015 Peter Whittingham Jazz Award, Patchwork Jazz Orchestra are a collective London based ensemble dedicated to championing big band music in a contemporary setting.

The 17 piece group made its debut at the 2014 London Jazz Festival to a sell out audience at the Forge, Camden, and since then has been turning heads with the sound of fresh original compositions written exclusively by its members.

Having performed at venues from London's Vortex Jazz Club to abroad at La Mortella, Ischia, Italy, the orchestra are setting up their own night, 'Patchwork', aided by the funding received from the Peter Whittingham Award. Click on the 'Patchwork' navigation tab to find out more.

"Patchwork Jazz Orchestra are plugged into the spirit of the current London jazz scene, littered with talented writers and players unafraid of thinking big."  - Julian Joseph
