The London Jazz Orchestra opens its new season at the Vortex featuring Kenny Wheeler’s Long Suite 2005, written for his 75th birthday tour. Kenny’s lyrical writing has been a huge influence on the band since its formation in 1991, and the LJO still sets the pace for performing new, engaging, cutting edge jazz written by its member-soloists. Its season opener accompanies Kenny’s suite with new music by Henry Lowther, Scott Stroman, Alcyona Mick and others.
