Yazz Ahmed

In the wake of her 2011 debut album Finding My Way Home, British-Bahraini trumpet and flugelhorn player Yazz Ahmed has emerged as a distinctive and intelligent soloist and composer.

Playing alongside jazz royalty like Toshiko Akiyoshi, Kenny Wheeler, Steve Williamson and Courtney Pine while heading up her own septet and recording and performing with international heavyweights like Radiohead and Lee ‘Scratch’ Perry, Ahmed has proved herself time and again to be an accomplished, versatile and exciting musician.

Illustrious venues all over the world, from Ronnie Scott’s Jazz Club to the Museum of Modern Art, have been graced with her seemingly effortless sound. Now– we’re suitably thrilled to say – it’s our turn.

This event is part of Bristol Jazz and Blues Festival. For more information and to view the whole line-up, please click here.
