Jam Experiment are a young band based in London. They won the 2014 Jazz North Introduces Scheme, shortly after their debut gig supporting Liane Carroll and have played at leading jazz festivals across the UK, leaving audiences in awe.
The line‐up includes the winner of the inaugural BBC Young Musician Jazz Award, saxophonist Alexander Bone, trombonist Rory Ingham, Toby Comeau on piano/keyoboard, Joe Lee on bass, and Jonny Mansfield on drums. Alexander Bone and trombonist Rory Ingham were both voted as runners‐up in the best instrumentalist (respectively) of the year in the British Jazz Awards 2016, and both were nominated for “Rising Star” in the 2016 British Jazz Awards, with Alexander Bone crowned Rising Star.
Jam Experiment display a fresh, energetic and honest approach of original compositions and arrangements. All band members write music for the band and contribute musical ideas equally, creating a beautifully varied set of music, and a very individual, cool and funky sound.

"Jam Experiment is one of the best young bands I've ever heard. The instrumental
playing is highly accomplished, but most impressively, this is a band that swings, has
great arrangements and knows how to present itself. A really refreshing presence on
the scene."‐ Alan Barnes
