Policy StatementThis event is being organised by a local committee of musicians and jazz fans.
Our aim is to promote jazz on the Isle of Wight. Members of the committee will not receive any financial reward. Inspected accounts will be made on request.
The committee will cover the cost of the main venues and headline acts. This will be funded by sponsorship, ticket sales and other fund-raising activities.
Any subsequent profits will go towards funding future events and a donation to charity (IW Mountbatten Hospice).
We will encourage other performances during the period. However, we will not act as agents. It will be the responsibility of the performers and venues to negotiate between themselves.

"A trumpeter whose style is a sizzling update of the Morgan/Hubbard approach"
- MOJO Magazine
Trumpeter Quentin Collins has performed across Europe with such luminaries as Prince, Jean Toussaint, Roy Hargrove, Dennis Rollins, Beverley Knight, US3 and Roy Ayers.
He is currently a member of the Kyle Eastwood Group.
In 2007 he released a critically acclaimed solo album, If Not Now, Then When? (Sunlightsquare Records), which was voted one of MOJO magazine's top ten jazz albums of the year.
Jazz regulars will know him from the recent Omar gig as the 'QC' in the QCBA Quartet.
