Sunday 11 January at 4 PM         LJO Vortex Sessions

The LJO charges into 2015 with exciting new music written by Pete Hurt, Scott Stroman, Josephine Davies, Noel Langley, Henry Lowther,  Robbie Robson, Stuart Hall, and Martin Hathaway.  Expect sensitive and stunning ensemble playing and great soloing from London's top players including Martin Speake, Alec Dankworth, Paul Clarvis, the player/writers above, and many others.

The LJO Vortex Sessions are London's longest jazz residency!

The LJO's Gil Evans' 100th anniversary Miles Ahead gig in May 2012, with Miles Evans and Henry Lowther, reviewed:

"This evening has been the best argument I have encountered for re-creating a classic performance. It took great music and made it even greater. This concert will affect how I listen to orchestral music for the rest of my life." 

 

Check out George Foster's London Jazz Blog review of our Miles Ahead concerts, recorded by BBC Radio 3 for broadcast on Jazz Lineup on 17 June, on our Press page.
