Six Yamaha scholars are to perform at London's 606 Jazz Club next month to celebrate the launch of a new CD.

The musicians have all contributed to the Yamaha New Jazz Sessions 2010 record, which also features the likes of Yolanda Brown, Mica Paris and Georgina Jackson.

On Wednesday 8th December, the scholars will each perform a 20-minute live set at the club as part of the album launch.

Those playing include pianists Dougie Freedman and Chris Gilligan, saxophonists Andrew Linham and Lluis Mather, double bass player Peter Randall and drummer Dave Hamblett.

Mike Ketley, senior director at Yamaha, said: "This recording opportunity demonstrates our commitment to promote the playing of jazz music and complements our many other music education and student support initiatives."

Kit Downes, one of the Yamaha scholars who performed on the 2009 edition of the CD, had his debut album Golden subsequently nominated for the 2010 Barclaycard Mercury Music prize.
