Further names have been added to the Jazzwise 20th Anniversary Festival, which runs from 13 to 18 March at Ronnie Scott's Jazz Club, including fiery Cuban jazz violin virtuoso Omar Puente and his sextet performing two shows on Friday 17 March, with propulsive all-female group Nérija opening. The Jazzwise 20th Anniversary Festival has been curated by Jazzwise's Jon Newey and Ronnie Scott's Paul Pace and is set to unite several generations of top British and international jazz talent, with some of the UK's hottest young jazz artists filling the opening spots.

These include two very rare club dates from iconic guitarist John McLaughlin's 4th Dimension band, on 13 and 14 March, with the first night opened by charismatic Indo-jazz clarinettist Arun Ghosh and his hard-grooving Quartet, the second with a solo set by acclaimed pianist Nikki Yeoh. Wednesday 15 March is topped by MOBO-winning saxophonist and rapper Soweto Kinch, with rising star trumpeter Yazz Ahmed's Hafla Quintet opening.

The specially-commissioned double bill on 16 March features the new 19-piece Julien Siegel Jazz Orchestra with a stunning line-up of UK giants from Henry Lowther to Jason Yarde and Percy Pursglove, plus Nick Smart's Black Eyed Dog, featuring the likes of pianist Kit Downes, saxophonist/bass clarinettist James Allsopp, guitarist John Parricelli and guest singer Claire Martin – all combining on Remembering Nick Drake: an evocative interpretation of the legendary folk/ jazz singer songwriter. This night will also feature a late set from latin-jazz seven-piece J-Sonics, with further late shows to be confirmed across the week. The final night on 18 March sees an unmissable double bill of top UK saxophonist, and Jazzwise Album of the Year winner, Tim Garland's One featuring Jason Rebello, Ant Law and Asaf Sirkis, plus dazzling trio Phronesis with special guest Julian Argüelles.
