Singers and musicians play jazz, blues and funk in a smaller ensemble.
About Jazz EnsembleA small and busy ensemble for the very best jazz musicians and singers. Led by Steven Legge and Kris Nock, the band performs a range of dixieland, jazz standards, blues, motown, and even a bit of James Bond thrown in for good measure. There are plenty of opportunities for soloists and improvisation. Open to current UWE Bristol students or by invitation.

"Jazz Ensemble gave me a way back into the music scene after taking a year out when I first joined university [...] As it is one of the smaller groups you experience a closer more community like spirit making it easier to get to know the other members."
