Winter Jazzfest features a UK jazz stage presented by PRS Foundation and BBC Music Introducing. Since 2015, BBC Music Introducing and PRS Foundation have been working together to support and create a platform for the UK’s most talented artists to showcase at overseas music industry events. PRS Foundation and BBC Music Introducing have assembled a stellar lineup featuring emerging artists: tenor saxophonist Nubya Garcia, vocalist, guitarist and composer Oscar Jerome and trumpeter/composer Yazz Ahmed. Hosting the stage will be famed BBC DJ and Brownswood Records label founder Gilles Peterson. Additionally, headliners The Comet Is Coming, a London-based band who incorporate elements of jazz, electronica, funk and psychedelic rock will close the showcase. The bandmembers go by pseudonyms "King Shabaka," "Danalogue the Conquerer," and "Betamax Killer," who are saxophonist Shabaka Hutchings, synth player Dan Leavers and drummer Max Hallett, respectively.
