On our third attempt to bring Joe Locke and vocalist Kenny Washington back to Scotland for a programme celebrating the ROCK, POP and SOUL songbook of well known classics. We are excited that it’s finally going to happen.
The celebrated vibraphonist Joe Locke first performed with the SNJO as a special guest on the album ‘American Adventure’ recorded in New York City in 2013, then premiered his first LIVE tour featuring the music of Mancini and Mandel with Kenny Washington in February 2017.
Relax and experience a heart-warming festive concert to immerse yourself into the Christmas spirit as the SNJO performs a feast of swinging jazz.
Our audition process will run until Friday, 5th November and we’re inviting all experienced improvisers who are able to sight-read, aged between 12 and 24 years to apply to join the SNJO’s youth wing.
On Friday 24th September the Scottish National Jazz Orchestra celebrates twenty-five years of top-quality music-making, drawn from almost 100 years of jazz and the classical and Scottish traditions.
In this concert series, the SNJO welcomes the return of our good friend and guest artist, Kurt Elling, a Grammy-winning jazz vocalist who can sing anything you could want to hear.
All four concerts are available to watch on-demand until 25 August 2021! Re-visit our recent 4-part concert series, Where Rivers Meet, the most ambitious multi-dimensional event for the SNJO to date, featuring Russian painter Maria Rud.
