Cambridge Jazz Festival returns to showcase a wealth of local and global talent alongside a celebration of Jazz icons for two packed weeks in November.

As ever, there is an eclectic range of musical styles for all tastes and ages, including early and modern Jazz, Latin, Soul, Funk, Blues, and Rock. Alongside the headline concerts, the 2023 programme includes a series of recitals, an extensive fringe programme, instrumental and vocal workshops, Q&As with celebrated musicians, jam sessions, family events, and live painting from visual artist in residence, Gina Southgate.

One of the most anticipated events includes a performance from YOLANDA BROWN at Saffron Hall on 17 November. Double MOBO award-winner, broadcaster and passionate advocate for music education, the multi-talented saxophonist YolanDa Brown is one of the most dynamic and high-profile characters on the UK music scene. Her music is a delicious fusion of Reggae, Jazz and Soul.

Mobo awards-winners, INCOGNITO make a welcome return to the Festival on 16 November at the Cambridge Junction. Since 1980, Jean Paul ‘Bluey’ Maunick and Incognito have been connecting with audiences, playing a positive blend of Jazz, Funk and Soul. Inspired by Earth, Wind & Fire, Stevie Wonder, Kool & the Gang, Marvin Gaye and UK bands such as Gonzalez & FBI, Incognito released their debut album Jazz Funk in 1981. Ten years later, they were signed to Gilles Peterson’s Talkin’ Loud label and became the biggest act in the label’s history with charts hits such as Always There feat. Jocelyn Brown, Still A Friend Of Mine, Don’t You Worry ‘bout A Thing and Everyday.

The Festival is also delighted to welcome the massively influential cult band, A CERTAIN RATIO, who will be blasting out their pioneering and unique sound of warping Jazz, hard Funk, Dance, Samba, post-Punk and Pop at the Cambridge Junction on 17 November.
