Ken Mathieson's Classic Jazz Orchestra
SUNDAY 29TH JUNE 2014
*subject to licence
This year Ken Mathieson's Classic Jazz Orchestra celebrates its 10th anniversary and in that decade it has established a high reputation for the quality of its musicianship, its versatility and, above all, for setting out to say something original in everything it does. With a repertoire ranging from the beginnings of jazz to hard bop, Jelly Roll Morton to Charles Mingus, there will be something for most tastes, all delivered with CJO's characteristic energy and joie-de-vivre. This concert will also see the launch of CJO's latest recording, exploring the great New Orleans Clarinet Tradition and some rare, unpublished works by Jelly Roll Morton.
