Yazz Ahmed

Yazz Ahmed
Trumpet and flugelhorn star Yazz Ahmed performs her revamped and revitalised take on contemporary jazz at a live concert.The Bahraini-British performer has worked with Radiohead and These New Puritans, experiments with electronic effects and shapes her own musical universe, evident in her latest album, La Saboteuse.
The record, composed of undulating rhythms, Middle Eastern melody and Yazz’s sonorous trumpet lines, includes contributions from musicians Lewis Wright on vibraphone, MOBO-winning Shabaka Hutchings on bass clarinet and Naadia Sherriff on Fender Rhodes keyboard.Ahmed, along with Kamasi Washington, Yussef Kamaal and Christian Scott, is part of the wave of young jazz artists eager to break the codes of the genre.
