Nominated in the British Jazz Awards 2013 (winners to be announced on 10 July) and voted 'Ensemble Of The Year' in the 2011 Parliamentary Jazz Awards, this four-piece Glasgow band brings a vibrant new sound to the world of jazz. Working without a traditional rhythm section, their concerts are characterised by the band''s trademark momentum, drive and charisma, with music that strongly embraces the jazz tradition whilst reaching out into the unknown towards new musical territory.

Brass Jaw's philosophy is the idea that music should be as engaging, entertaining and humorous as it is virtuosic, cerebral and progressive. They have worked with ECM recording artist John Surman who composed two new works for them, which were premiered at the 2009 British Composers Awards.
