Michael Connarty MP, Co-Chair of the All-Party Parliamentary Jazz Appreciation Group stated, “Yamaha added another dimension to the Parliamentary Jazz Groups' efforts to promote jazz, with their wonderful Yamaha Jazz Scholarships, developing our events from appreciation and enjoyment of jazz to encouraging jazz education. I hope this showcase CD of the young talents we enjoy at our 'live' Yamaha jazz scholarship concerts in Parliament will open peoples' ears to the high quality of jazz music being created in the UK.  Yamaha gets my Vote - of Thanks."
Yamaha Managing Director Mark Rolfe commented, “The Yamaha New Jazz Sessions’ cd and live launch at the 606 have added showcase and professional development opportunities to these innovative scholarships that have further extended our relationship with Jazzwise, PPL and the All Party Parliamentary Jazz Appreciation Group. We are committed to the promotion of Jazz Performance and these scholarships complement our many other music education and student support initiatives. What better way to support the studies and showcase the talent of the UK’s finest upcoming young Jazz musicians than through financial assistance, live performance and the recording opportunity that features them alongside major artists in the jazz world on the cover of the UK’s biggest selling jazz magazine.”
