The debut of Patchwork Jazz Orchestra is under a week now, with our London Jazz Festival launch gig taking place next Tuesday 18th at the Forge in Camden. We've been working really hard during the past few weeks rehearsing 2 sets of some fantastic new music written by a collection of us in the band, including arrangements I've written of two of my compositions, "Barcarolle" and "Mind Palace". Having a group of such great performers and composers in one place is a real privilege and we're all very excited to get this new project underway. The gig is all set to be a corker so do come down if you can!
We were lucky to have a feature in London Jazz News about the launch. Read all about it here.
The next week promises to be a busy one, starting with a 3 date mini tour with Tom Green's septet, followed by 4 London Jazz Festival dates which I'm very much looking forward to, including gigs with the London Vocal Project, Tom Green Septet, Patchwork Jazz Orchestra and Misha Mullov-Abbado Quintet - see the 'dates' page for more info.
Hope to see you at one of the gigs!
