The London-based 17-piece Patchwork Jazz Orchestra are set to release their debut album, The Adventures of Mr Pottercakes, on 1 March on Spark! Records, with a live launch at the Queen Elizabeth Hall’s foyer space on the same date. The Peter Whittingham Award-winning band feature a whole host of fast rising twentysomething jazz talent that includes trumpeter James Copus, trombonist Tom Green, saxophonist Alex Hitchcock, guitarist Rob Luft and double bassist Misha Mullov-Abbado – all of whom can be heard on the track ‘Badger Cam’ below.

Generating a substantial buzz through their sold-out gig at last year’s EFG London Jazz Festival, the band are set to take the album on the road on the following dates: The Clarendon Muse, Watford (24 Feb); Junction 2, Cambridge (26 Feb); Yellow Arch Studios, Sheffield (27 Feb); Seven Arts, Leeds (28 Feb); Queen Elizabeth Hall Foyer, London (5.30pm, 1 Mar) and Tap Social Movement, Oxford (20 Mar).
