Scotland’s National Jazz Orchestra is delighted to be making a return visit to Ronnie Scott’s Jazz Club in London in January 2020 with a fabulous selection of great big band music.

On Friday 24th January, on the eve of  Burns night, we celebrate with two concerts of Alba: Songs of Scotland. Join the internationally acclaimed Scottish National Jazz Orchestra, director Tommy Smith, and their special guest, the inimitable Eddi Reader, as together, they richly re-imagine Scotland through uplifting music, beautiful arrangements, and a truly unmistakable Scottish voice.

Then on Saturday 25th January we have two different shows.

Torah” –  The early show offers orchestral jazz at its most powerful, creative and expressive: a tour de force for tenor saxophone and orchestra that takes a spiritual journey through the blues and jazz stratospheres. Encapsulating the first five books of the Bible, Torah tells the story of creation in music that is vividly enacted, robust and beautifully detailed, approachable, stimulating and rewarding.

“Atomic Mr Basie”  The SNJO’s late night programme will set feet tapping with music from the library of iconic jazz figure, Count Basie. In particular, the orchestra has chosen to play in full Atomic Mr Basie – one of Basie’s infrequently heard seminal works that includes favourite tracks such as Li’l Darlin’, Kid from Red Bank and Splanky.

Over two nights and three very different concerts, the SNJO showcases its versatility and invention with their special guests: vocalist Eddi Reader (24th), Saxophonist Tommy Smith (25th / set 1) and pianist Brian Kellock (25 January / set 2).
