Yorkshire Musicians are Yamaha Jazz Scholars
UPDATE (from Chris de Saram, Wakefield Jazz) "Yorkshire and Wakefield connection with Matt Robinson (piano - Royal Academy) and Ben Mallinder (tenor - Trinity Laban). Those last two were both brought up in Wakefield and had played for Wakefield Jazz many times before and during their student years. Along with Reuben Fowler (trumpet - Royal Academy), also a Wakefield lad and 2012 Kenny Wheeler Jazz Prize winner . "They were an exceptional trio of local musicians often joined by Wakefield's bass-playing Tom McCredie who went on to study at Birmingham Conservatoire and then Royal Academy."
