Although the i-Player broadcast of NYJO’s late night BBC Jazz Prom at The Royal Albert Hall on Friday 13th August is no longer available, you can still get a flavour of the occasion by watching this rousing rendition of the introductory number, Duke Ellington’s Rockin’ in Rhythm.
The Prom was an unqualified success. Were you there? What did you think? Let us know your comments.
Read John Fordham’s Guardian review of the concert here or in the Gigs Review section. Jack Massarik’s review of the concert for the Evening Standard can be read here. Jazzwise Magazine’s website carries an appreciative review too, and saxophonist Frank Griffith, who doubles as Director of Performance at Brunel University, was moved to comment: “The concert was remarkable and a real crowning moment for NYJO and jazz in general in the UK”.
