For the past few years London's young music scene has seen a regenerated interest in jazz. 

Kids who grew up on Grime's drum patterns and the instrumentation of neo-soul are being tempted into the abstract world of jazz, creating a sound which is unmistakably London, born and bred. 

This film from Jon E Price follows two such musicians, collectively known as Blue Lab Beats, as they hone their craft in a close knit scene. Theon Cross, Moses Boyd, Savannah Small and Sumo Chief are all featured.
