The SNJO are delighted to announce that our latest CD, JEUNEHOMME featuring pianist Makoto Ozone has just been released on the Spartacus Record label.
An air of great anticipation surrounded the premiere of Makoto Ozone’s very special arrangement of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart’s 9th Piano Concerto for The Scottish National Jazz Orchestra.
This universally popular work, known familiarly as Jeunehomme is here re-imagined by a daring soloist in Makoto Ozone, an exceptional big band in the Scottish National Jazz Orchestra (SNJO), and a courageous leader in director Tommy Smith.
