The CJQ is based around groove music and the more modern side of jazz artists, drawing inspiration from the likes of Mark Guiliana, Darryl Reeves, Roy Hargrove, Christian McBride and Eric Harland. The aim of the band is to hark back to the tradition of jazz, but then use the influence and knowledge to move forward and create something new, utilising rhythmic grooves and ideas to go in a different direction.

This series features performances by the best Conservatoire senior Jazz students’ small bands.
