is rich in history and culture, yet it is also a music that remains
fresh and new simply because it will always evolve and develop.
Musicians and singers will continue to look at expressing songs
and music in different ways, as well as experimenting with new compositional
techniques, harmonies and chord progressions. Jazz Services was
formed over 19 years ago to promote the growth and development of
jazz within the UK.
Jazz Services Limited is a registered charity funded by the Arts
Council of England with financial assistance from the Musicians'
Union (MU), the Foundation for Sport and the Arts and the Performing
Right Society (PRS). The staff of Chris Hodgkins (Director), Celia
Wood (Information and Publications Manager) and Phil Meloy (Information
Officer) are assisted by part time work from Montfort Maxon (Administration),
Steve French (Computer Consultant) and Biddie Samuels (Support Worker).
Making Sure Jazz Gets Heard
We exist to promote and develop jazz in the UK. We offer services
in information, education, touring, communications, marketing and
publishing. In short, Jazz Services provides a voice for jazz.
Our Voice is Getting Louder and Louder
As a result of increased funding through a substantial A4E Lottery
grant from the Arts Council of England, Jazz Services is now able
to offer a much improved and far more comprehensive range of services
covering all aspects of jazz.
