Policy Statement

This 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 available 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.

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.

Adam King

Adam KingBorn in Jersey, Channel Islands in 1987, Adam took up the alto saxophone at 9 years old. Through the exposure of different styles of music from his father he started playing electric bass guitar at 14 and before 15 was getting booked on gigs in and around the Channel Islands. Having had the opportunity to play within a wide variety of genres including Rock, Pop, and R&B; he realised that it was Jazz that offered the greatest level of freedom and expression musically.

He studied Jazz Music at Middlesex University gaining First Class Honours. He took up double bass in the 2nd year of his studies and within 5 years has become one of the most in demand bassists on the UK scene.

He has been asked to play with some of the most prolific musicians on the UK and international jazz scene including Peter King, Stan Tracey, Julian Joseph, Will Vinson, Joe Cohn, Gilad Atzmon, Jim Mullen, Alan Barnes and Nigel Hitchcock amongst many others. He can often be seen playing at London's top Jazz establishments such as Ronnie Scott's, 606 Jazz Club and Pizza Express Jazz Club.

Adam currently is based professionally in the UK and has toured much of Europe including Holland, Italy, Spain, Portugal, France and Germany with domestic and international musicians. He is also just as comfortable in the studio as on stage having recorded for the likes of Warner Brothers, Universal and the BBC.

Watch Adam play "Nostagia in Times Square" with Dave O'Higgins or Jazz at Wendy's houseparty
