The Sydney Women’s Jazz Collective is a 10-piece powerhouse whose talented members represent some of our city’s most exciting up-and-coming jazz stars. Led by trumpeter Ellen Kirkwood and bassist Hannah James, it boasts a powerful six-piece horn section and tight-knit four-piece rhythm section. Included in the group’s impressive line-up is acclaimed Sydney saxophonist and national treasure Sandy Evans, plus several past winners of the prestigious Jann Rutherford Memorial Award for young women in jazz.

Formed in 2016 as the resident band for the Sydney International Women’s Jazz Festival, this group’s repertoire consists of specially commissioned works by Australian composers Andrea Keller, Jenna Cave, Ellen Kirkwood and Glenn Doig.
