Vibes player Jonny Mansfield was a winner of the Kenny Wheeler prize and is a young musician and composer who is already making waves in the jazz world.

Jonny Mansfield’s Elftet is an eleven piece band playing “intricate but groove laden originals that appealed across generations” and was formed in September 2015. They have performed around the UK and have been played on BBC Radio 3 and WBGO (New York jazz station). In September 2017, Elftet recorded at Real World Studios with vibraphone virtuoso Jim Hart producing, Alex Bonney engineering and mixing as well as exciting guests Gareth Lockrane, Kit Downes and tenor legend Chris Potter. Their eponymous debut album was released on Edition in 2019.


Artist’s Website
“There's something of a Mike Gibbs feel to Mansfield's compositions with some Loose Tubes sensibility thrown in for good measure, but none of these allusions detract from the sheer originality his music exudes. A promise of magnificent things to follow.”
