Review: Bobby Wellins And The Scottish National Jazz Orchestra: Culloden Moor Suite

It’s over 268 years since the Battle of Culloden and yet the event continues to resonate in contemporary Scotland (which votes on independence just a few days after this album is released). Tenor saxophonist Bobby Wellins wrote his Culloden Moor Suite in 1961, inspired by John Prebble’s book, Culloden, released in the same year.
