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.

Scott Garland

Scott GarlandScott Garland has been playing professionally since the age of 14. His first jobbing gig was with a jazzfunk band called "Hard Lines" in the 1980's. He then started attending rehearsals with NYJO and started gigging with the orchestra at the age of 16. At 18 he went to Berklee College of Music in Boston, to study jazz performance.

On heading back to the UK, he moved from Kent to London and started working in and around London, the UK and Europe. He has played with a variety of artistes and bands, including The Spice Girls, The Brand New Heavies, The Style Council, Shirley Bassey and Michael Ball, as well as doing session work and West End shows.

He has been a member of two award-winning bands - Sax Appeal and The Pete Cater Big Band, both on lead alto sax. He currently lives in Sussex and is teaching, lecturing, freelancing and running his own band Straight To The Heart, a David Sanborn tribute band. He is currently a member of the highly aclaimed Spice Fusion.

Scott Garland is an astonishing virtuoso on alto, soprano and tenor saxophone. His style is rooted in the contemporary modal jazz-fusion idiom, and his highly-individual harmonic style and unparalleled technique make his sound unmistakable on any studio or jazz date.
