In 2003 Jamil formed his own group, The Jamil Sheriff Octet. The group was formed after a successful application to Arts Council England to fund a project that would help develop Jamil’s composing skills and provide stimulating work for regional players.

The continued support of Arts Council England has helped with the planning and funding of the spring 2007 national tour
