A Northern Line joint presentation featuring a host of young stars including Laura Jurd
Simon Read has played Wakefield Jazz several times in support bands but now brings hismost ambitious professional project featuring his attractive writing. Simon is as much in demand in the Classical world as he is in Jazz and is a respected composer. The band represents the cream of his generation of Leeds graduates with two LCoM staff (Jamil and Kevin) and a good school friend Laura Jurd. This superb « mid band » contains the power to give a mighty boost to the scores Simon has written for them and, at the same time, the soloing skills to take the music to another interesting level. Expect clever arrangements of listenable tunes and exciting, adventurous improvisation.
Will Howard - tenor & clarinet
