NYJO – Rockin’ in Rhythm near the seaside at Snape…NYJO will be performing at the 2012 Snape Proms – taking place in the historic Snape Maltings Concert Hall near Aldeburgh in Suffolk – just two days after the band’s prestigious late night BBC Prom at The Royal Albert Hall.

Teaming up again with one of the UK’s leading jazz composer/performers, saxophonist Tim Garland, NYJO will be presenting a set celebrating Duke Ellington’s urbane stylish classics for jazz orchestra – including Caravan, Sunset, Mocking Bird and, of course, Rockin’ in Rhythm.

The concert will also include music by some of today’s leading jazz writers; Garland himself – with his composition Agro Alegria, which premiered at the BBC Prom – Nikki Iles and NYJO band members Chris Whiter and Callum Au, amongst other talented young composers.

Celebrating a legend, mixing the old and the brand new and highlighting the brightest of the UK’s young jazz talents – this will be an unmissable evening for all lovers of quality big band jazz.
