On the afternoon of the 31st May 2015 two musical worlds are due to collide. I’m re-awaking the Jazz Orchestra from it’s endless slumber for a special one-off-never-to-be-repeated show. Me and sixteen of the very best jazz and session musicians in Yorkshire will join forces with a plethora of unique vocal talents from the Leeds indie rock/folk/pop scene to make beautiful music together.

I’ll be announcing these awesome acts below and via twitter and facebook over the next few weeks so keep your eyes peeled. It’ll also be another chance to hear the Jazz Yorkshire commissioned “Yorkshire Suite” performed again.

For now get the date in your diary.

Make sure you follow the Jazz Orchestra on Facebook for updates and news.
