JAM String Collective

In partnership with Women in Jazz Media and Tomorrow’s Warriors.

J.A.M String Collective is a unique contemporary jazz string trio that specializes in re-imagining works by jazz legends such as Ornette Coleman, Thelonious Monk, and Kenny Wheeler. Led by Annalise Lam on violin, Julia Dos Reis on viola, and Miranda Lewis-Brown on cello, the trio also features their own original compositions.

Their arrangements feature moments of freeness with a heavy emphasis on interaction and improvisation, creating a dynamic and engaging performance.

Julia and Miranda met in 2015 through Tomorrow’s Warriors Jazz String project, String Ting, and have performed together extensively across the UK and Europe. They have also played with larger Warrior ensembles such as Peter Edward’s Nu Civilisation Orchestra and Jazz Jamaica, as well as played their own gigs at renowned venues such as Ronnie Scott’s, Pizza Express Club Soho, and The Purcell Room SBC. In 2019, they supported legendary saxophonist Steve Williamson on his UK tour.

Annalise joined the larger collective of String Ting more recently, meeting Julia at a jazz workshop led by violinist Benet McClean. Their shared passion for jazz continued through their Masters studies at Guildhall, where they would meet to jam ideas, many of which have been developed into J.A.M’s performances.

J.A.M String Collective is part of Tomorrow’s Warriors, a pioneering talent development organization, creative producer, learning and training provider, charity, and consultancy specializing in jazz. Tomorrow’s Warriors has helped aspiring young artists from diverse backgrounds to discover their magic and achieve creative ambitions since its inception in 1991.

Their award-winning alumni include Moses Boyd, Nubya Garcia, Sheila Maurice-Grey, Cassie Kinoshi and Nerija, Femi Koleoso and Ezra Collective, Binker Golding, Shabaka Hutchings and Sons of Kemet, ESKA, Denys Baptiste, Soweto Kinch, Ben Burrell, Zara McFarlane, Camilla George, CHERISE, Nathaniel Facey, and Empirical, Peter Edwards, and more.
