Stevie Wonder, Billy Joel, Earth, Wind & Fire, The Beatles and more - The Scottish National Jazz Orchestra with guests Joe Locke and Kenny Washington
Award-winning master vibraphonist Joe Locke and vocalist extraordinaire Kenny Washington join the SNJO once again to play a fabulous selection of tracks taken from the modern American songbook - a rich and weighty tome running to several volumes of wonderfully popular songs.
Singer-songwriters such as Stevie Wonder, Billy Joel and Joni Mitchell brought heartfelt soul music to their work, while artists and performers like Earth, Wind & Fire, Led Zeppelin and Steely Dan showered their enduring recordings with jazz, funk, orchestral and eclectic ornamentation. The platinum success of their gold-plated careers is in no small part due to the availability of jazz music and jazz masters as a fountainhead of knowledge, artistry and intellect.
The SNJO and their guests will take this music into their care and re-apply generous brushstrokes of improvisation through newly commissioned arrangements to create new melodic patterns and textures from comfortably familiar musical imagery.
