Directed by Scott Stroman, the London Jazz Orchestra has been described as “as fine a band as you can find anywhere” (The Independent).
Kenny Wheeler, who died in September, was one of the world’s most original and inspiring writers of modern big-band jazz, creating an instantly recognisable, rich, lyrical and uplifting sound. Ken was a founder member of the (new) London Jazz Orchestra when it was created in 1991, and his playing and writing have influenced several generations of composer-soloists that make up this uniquely ambitious and dedicated band.
For this special celebration, the LJO celebrate Ken with a full concert of his music featuring soloists Henry Lowther, Martin Speake, Alec Dankworth, Pete Hurt, Paul Clarvis, and many others.
The LJO’s recent gigs have been sell-outs, and the club has limited space, so please book in advance.
On stage 3.30pm
