The Tommy Smith Youth Jazz Orchestra is delighted to start their 20th anniversary year with two stunning concerts that bring alive the energy of jazz and pay tribute to some legendary names.
It is twenty years since the inception of the TSYJO, and in that time, the orchestra has been a platform for some of the most exciting young jazz musicians in the UK and our present ensemble includes several award-winners and critically acclaimed individuals who have won recognition and approval from audiences and press alike.
The future for jazz in Scotland is assured as these gifted players, under the direction of Scotland’s most distinguished jazz musician, Tommy Smith play a repertoire that includes music from jazz legends such as Ellington, Basie, and Gillespie and from their newest CD Effervescence.
Enjoy a fantastic afternoon as these young players showcase endless talent, improvisational skills, exuberance and verve in an extraordinary concert of outstanding music. Please do join us.
