Reviews of the LJO...

...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 anniversary performance of Miles Ahead:   "This concert will affect how I listen to orchestral music for the rest of my life."
