East Coast Blow Out
AUJO, featuring Fergus McCreadie and HAMLET will perform a programme of contemporary big band classics, including music by Kenny Wheeler and Pat Metheny, culminating in the edgy East Coast Blow Out Suite, which is a dramatic, extended work for Big Band and soloists, full of dynamic and rhythmic variation.
Written by Jim McNeely, ECBO is intellectual, challenging, and powerful contemporary jazz. Don’t miss this rare chance to hear a modern jazz classic.
