Beyond the Blue are an exciting, up-and-coming London-based Jazz band. They have played a number of sell-out shows in venues ranging from The Vortex Jazz Club to Hootananny Brixton to Milton Court Concert Hall as a part of the EFG London Jazz Festival. They have also opened for many established artists such as Moses Yoofee Trio, Blue Lab Beats, Ebi Soda and Rosie Frater-Taylor. Their music, written and arranged by pianist/composer Jude Lane, draws influence from a wide range of genres ranging from UK dance music to jazz and classical music, with a unique instrumentation of: cello, guitar, alto, tenor and rhythm section. Their latest release, a four-track live session, reimagines their previous quartet material in a dynamic septet setting that sets the tone for a future debut album release. Keen to collaborate, they are also currently working with Irish spoken word duo Ugolino, preparing for some exciting shows in summer 2024.
“…their sound crosses genres and pushes boundaries whilst retaining their roots in the UK jazz scene.” - Voicemag UK (live show review), https://www.voicemag.uk/review/10984/review-future-jazz
