Forj Definitely one of the most exciting new line-ups on the UK jazz scene, led by drummer Jonathan Silk, Forj features two of London's finest improvisers, Joe Wright and Josh Arcoleo both on tenor saxophones, and Nick Jurd on double bass.

Driving, expansive, interactive, purposeful, and intensely grooving yet rhythmically subtle music. They're inspired by the likes of Jim Black, Ornette Coleman and Chris Lightcap.

"Forj's set was a wild, muscular delight" - London Jazz News (UK)
