We are very proud to announce that the new studio album 'SOUNDWAVE' recorded by YMF Youth Jazz Orchestra is now available to listen to and download (CDs are available to buy too!). Just click here!
The album sounds incredible and it's hard to believe that it was recorded by school age musicians. York really has some wonderfully talented young jazz musicians.
Since we don't receive any external funding all the proceeds from album sales will be used to benefit all the ensembles we work with and our shopping list includes new fancy big band stands, lighting equipment and modular staging so please, please, please buy this wonderful new album!
This album wouldn't have been possible to record without the help and expertise of David Rose, our amazing sound engineer. David gave his time and expertise entirely for free for this project and we can never thank him enough. David Rose Sound Services's website is here and we recommend that you contact David for all your location recording needs.
We would also like to thank all the parents who have supported us and of course all the musicians who gave up their time to record this amazing music.
So please listen to the album and then buy it so we can make York Jazz Initiative even more brilliant!
I'm busy working on my blog posts. Watch this space!
