Deschanel Gordon, born in Hackney, North East London, won the title after five finalists played 15-minute sets that aired on BBC Four.

Gordon said, “I had a great time playing and hearing the other musicians in the finals.

“Especially in a year when live music was suppressed, every opportunity to play is very special to me. ”

The judging panel consisted of British instrumentalists such as Orphy Robinson, who said Gordon had « shown a wonderful, mature sound and approach ». .

The finalists had to play their own music renditions from the standard jazz repertoire and at least one piece of their own arrangement or composition.

Gordon graduated from the Trinity Laban Conservatory of Music and Dance in London this year and has worked with the Mercury Award nominated SEED ensemble and Mark Kavuma’s The Banger Factory. He also has his own trio.

The other finalists were saxophonists Alex Clarke and Matt Carmichael, bassist Kielan Sheard and guitarist Ralph Porrett.
