As the press release states, Made in the UK “remains one of the largest presentations of British Jazz outside the UK and several of the bands will also be performing on the Canadian festival circuit this year. 80 groups submitted applications to perform in the series and the final nine were chosen by John Nugent, Producer/Artistic Director, Xerox Rochester International Jazz Festival.”

John Nugent said: “For over 10 years now, it’s been indeed my honour and artistic joy to invite many of the finest jazz artists from the United Kingdom to the Rochester International Jazz Festival. Having received submissions for consideration from 80 groups hoping to perform here, we’re very pleased with our lineup this year. It’s no secret that the Rochester audience is keenly tuned in to what the UK artists have to say! Our Made in The UK series is without question a key destination for our patrons as one of our Club Pass venues. This year we are delighted to present another nine exceptional groups who will be warmly received here in Rochester and at other locations in North America. Made In the UK has helped to define XRIJF as one of the leading creative music festivals in North America. Thank you to all the exceptional artists who submitted materials for our consideration!”
