Ronnie Scott’s & the Women in Jazz team are back after an incredible run last year with the Berklee educated 24-year-old drummer Jas Kayser for an evening of Afro-beat inspired grooves blended with jazz-influenced harmony and contagious horn lines, with a refreshing take on African vocal harmonies.
Mentored by Terri-Lyne Carrington and currently moving between London and Panama City, where she teaches at pianist Danilo Perez’s Jazz Foundation, she’s also a composer and band leader who loves to explore the commonality between jazz and afro-beat. Jas has featured in bands with leading British lights Nubya Garcia, Ashley Henry and Jorja Smith as well as American drummer Ralph Peterson’s Big Band and had a starring role on drums alongside Lenny Kravitz in the official video for his song Low.
Jas’s more recent projects have been presenting her original band at some of the top jazz venues for the London Jazz Festival 2019, RISE concert in Boston supporting Terri Lyne Carrington and Panama Jazz Festival for the past 2 years.
Women in Jazz is a London-based organisation, that champions and nurtures the talents of female musicians across the UK Jazz scene. Ronnie Scott’s is one of the oldest and most famous jazz clubs on the planet, celebrating its 60th anniversary this year. It is the place to catch visionary trailblazers and young rising stars, and over the past 60 years has played host to most of the legends and popular names of the jazz and jazz fusion scene.
