Following the ecstatic reception to their first UK tour Jaga Jazzist is once again returning to the UK. Mars Volta is curating the All Tomorrows Parties festival this weekend and has invited Jaga Jazzist to play.
Ever since their beginnings Jaga have been a band who have searched for something different – without any interest in the latest trends, with no concern for who is on the cover of which magazine, this ten piece collective from Norway have focussed their efforts on evolving a unique sound which can collectively express their musical ideas. It’s a quest that’s been going on for a decade now.

Recent UK reviews of Jaga Jazzist, include:
- “Where they once twisted jazz into jagged, exciting forms, now Jaga are taking rock in whole new directions too. Marvellous” **** Metro
- “A notable return to form” **** Jazzwise
- “The record they’ve been working towards all these years” 8/10 Rock Sound
- “Ten-piece Norwegian jazz outfit they may be, but JJ are completely devoid of any noodle-wankery. If you can’t love a band who mix Aphex-style electronica with experimental grooviness like ‘I Have A Ghost Now What?’ then you’re dead baby.” 7/10 NME
- “This is the sound ambitious rock bands wishing they could shake off their shackles hear in their imaginations, but almost never achieve” *** Sunday Times
