GRCH presents: Scottish National Jazz Orchestra, The Count and The Duke: Basie and Ellington

The Scottish National Jazz Orchestra directed by Tommy Smith celebrates


The Count and The Duke: Basie and Ellington
with Brian Kellock


It’s time to swing again, as the SNJO celebrates jazz legends Count Basie and Duke Ellington. Pivotal to the evolution of orchestral jazz, Basie and Ellington created music that defined an era and the SNJO have chosen to feature their landmark albums, The Atomic Mr Basie and Ellington's Black, Brown & Beige in these special concerts. 


Playing these suites in full for the first time in their 23year history, this fabulous SNJO programme will set feet tapping with infectious swing, or soothe with mellow melody. Tracks will include Basie’s wonderful Li'l Darlin', Kid from Red Bank and Splanky as well as Ellington’s famous Work Song and Come Sunday. Once more, Scotland’s National Jazz Orchestra offers audiences a wonderful concert not to be missed!


Great swing means everything in orchestral jazz and these repertoires of Count Basie and Duke Ellington have it in enormous bundles of unbridled joy.
