Jam Experiment is made up of bandleader Rory Ingham, who plays trombone, BBC Young Jazz Musician of Year 2014 – saxophonist Alex Bone, pianist Toby Comeau, bassist Felix Moseholm, and drummer Jonathan Mansfield.
The band describes its approach as “energetic, connected, creative, swingin’, humorous, enthusiastic”. It came together after a weekly jam, and the players’ ambitions are to play exciting original compositions and arrangements, make a strong impression and search for something that is musically new. Among its inspirations and influences are guitar titan Pat Metheny, keyboard legend Herbie Hancock, bassist Christian McBride and pianist Gwilym Simcock.
