Jazz Services provides a voice for jazz promoting its growth and development by offering services in information, education, touring, communications, marketing and publishing:
Jazz Services runs the most comprehensive database on the UK jazz scene – a wealth of information gathered over years of supporting and encouraging musicians. We can supply detailed advice and information by phone or email and most of our resources are accessible via the web site.
Tours and Support
Jazz Services supplies information and guidance to musicians, bands, promoters and managers, enabling them to set up and market their own UK tours. Free of charge and much sought-after, our Touring Support Scheme is a unique resource available only from Jazz Services. Among the many other projects we administer are a Recording Support Scheme, Promoter Choice and the PRS Foundation Jazz Promoters Awards Scheme.
Children are natural improvisers – a fact which is now reflected in the National Curriculum’s inclusion of improvisation in primary musical education. Jazz Services works tirelessly to expand this awareness and help foster the jazz musicians and audiences of tomorrow.
Jazz Services is dedicated to networking, and strives to help musicians, promoters listeners, and all kinds of jazz organisers and sympathisers reach each other. We also facilitate contacts between international jazz organisations, and promote the free exchange of information between countries, for the benefit of jazz in general and UK players in particular.
Communications and Marketing
Jazz Services can offer you a consultancy tailoring information on markets, venues, promoters and audiences to your particular needs – backed up by a formidable database of updated information on radio and TV stations, press, festivals, musicians and bands in the UK.
