The Sam Leak Big Band present Summer Tales and Winding Roads

Marking a year since its first performance, Sam Leak returns to Soho’s Spice of Life to revisit his extended suite for big band. Sometimes rich and and sonorous and at others eerily sparse, the writing conjures up a journey across America and all of the encounters along the way. With an all star line up of some of the UK’s greatest Jazz musicians, this promises to be a very exciting evening.

‘an impressively mature piece of work… I thought Leak’s suite [for big band] was superb and represented a considerable artistic achievement.’ (Ian Mann, The Jazz Mann)
