London’s longest running jazz residency continues as the LJO opens its new season at the Vortex Jazz.
The LJO continues to set the standard in modern jazz, with great ensemble playing, cutting edge writing, and exciting soloing from the finest players on the scene. Check out the band at these informal, close-up and personal monthly gigs.
…on the Saberton Album, the band’s new CD release on Babel Label:
“This album is at its best when the London Jazz Orchestra unpick the majesty of Saberton’s written music. It was written for these players, and theirs is the sound which Saberton held in his mind.”….
…in Kenny Wheeler’s Windmill Tilter at Wavendon:
“probably British jazz gig of the year”….
“From the first notes, the band presented a spine-tingling version of Windmill Tilter which even to those very familiar with this suite was hugely gratifying…”
…on the LJO’s Gil Evans centenary performance of Miles Ahead: “…This concert will affect how I listen to orchestral music for the rest of my life.“
