SNJO Porgy & Bess, Sketches of Spain

Miles Davis and Gil Evans gifted Porgy & Bess and Sketches of Spain to jazz as vibrant, sultry and enormously satisfying pieces of modern music including such tracks as Summertime and It Ain’t Necessarily So.
The Scottish National Jazz Orchestra is delighted to pay homage to these legendary musicians and with guest trumpet soloists Tom MacNiven and Laura Jurd will explore these majestic musical narratives that are compelling masterpieces of orchestral jazz.
