For the second year running, BOZAR has put together programme of edgy jazz. Listen and watch as local and international artists tease and cross the boundaries of jazz, fusing the genre with other styles, from nu jazz through electro, funk, hip-hop, nouvelle vague, free jazz, spoken word and ambient to psychedelic or minimalist music. You name it, weve included it.

We are excited to welcome the Ruby Rushton quartet to present their recent album Ironside in BOZAR. This unique record, recorded over two days in the legendary Abbey Road Studios, is a new stage in Ruby Rushtons mission to blend different musical genres. The quartets fresh, high-energy approach is rooted in the spiritual concepts of Coltrane and Yusef Lateef, but also adds the influences of hip-hop, Afrobeat and UK underground culture.
