The first night in our new season of 'Tomorrow the Moon V'; a series of Blow the Fuse concerts featuring cross-generational double bills of women-led jazz projects. Tonight features the stunning Alexandra Ridout Quintet, led by the BBC Jazz Musician of the Year Alexandra Ridout on trumpet. They are a group of exceptional teenage musicians who are already creating waves in the jazz world. Their passion for the music and outstanding musicianship produce an incredibly mature band sound that belies their tender years.
