The Gareth Lockrane Big Band

Mention Big Band Jazz and memories flood with the great American Sounds of Basie, Ellington, Dorsey, Evans, Jones & Marsalis. No longer! One of the worlds most outstanding bands comes from our side of the pond.

Arriving for their debut at The Other Palace comes the sensational 19-piece British Big Band, led by the original writing and arranging of the brilliant jazz  flautist Gareth Lockrane.

Playing the music from their recent album, “Fistfight At The Barndance”, rated a top five jazz album of the year in the 2017 British Jazz Awards, the Gareth Lockrane Big Band (“Probably the best Jazz Big Band since Thad Jones & Mel LewisThe Hoste of Jazz) features a combination of established British jazz greats with Academy trained younger musicians, in multi layered arrangements scored for 4 trumpets, 4 trombones, 5 reeds, guitar, piano, bass, percussion and drums in addition to Gareth on the entire  flute family.

“...Lockrane is the next best thing and the most exciting and inventive instrumentalist in the country.”London Evening Standard 

Please do see this recent review in Jazz Journal of this amazing band.

 

Performance starts at 3pm.

Tickets £30, £25 & £20
