A small taste of what is coming this Friday at the CBSO Centre, Birmingham
The big band complete with string section are performing this coming Friday at the CBSO Centre, Birmingham as the final date of the launch touring for the new album ‘Fragment‘. Released on Stoney Lane Records in November, I am very excited to share this full lineup of the music in what promises to be a very special evening as part of the Jazzlines THSH programming.
The big band has been quietly busy in various settings including a few performances over the following years at places like Manchester Jazz Festival, the fringes of EFG London Jazz Festival and others besides. With the recording of this new material I am very excited to bring the band back to such a grand stage in my home town of Birmingham to showcase this ensemble.
