J-Night is proud to be a founding member of Jazz North, along with Jazz Yorkshire, Manchester Jazz Festival, NW Jazzworks and Live Music Now.
Jazz North has grown to become the Strategic Development Agency for jazz in the North of England and is now funded and recognised as a National Portfolio Organisation (NPO) by Arts Council England.
Aiming to enrich lives through improvisation, Jazz North works towards increasing the profile of contemporary jazz both in terms of providing opportunities for jazz musicians and increasing audience sizes in the North.
Jazz North’s vision is that the North becomes increasingly recognised nationally and internationally as a place that enables jazz artists to reside, work and develop their practice in dialogue with new and existing audiences.
