The 2018 BBC Young Jazz Musician will be taking to the stage at Singleton Park on Saturday 14 September, armed with his saxophone, to deliver his wonderful prize-winning style of jazz.
Xhosa Cole, aged 22 and from Handsworth, has performed with ensembles such as the Jazzlines Ensemble and his own quartet, the CharCole Collective, which performs music exploring Birmingham’s cultural history.
To win the BBC Young Jazz Musician title in 2018, Cole had to perform a 16-minute set with a three-piece backing band. Xhosa’s performance included music by jazz legends, John Coltrane and Johnny Green, together with his own work, Moving Ladywood.Book Tickets Now
