Fresh & Different to Traditional Big Bands
Although big bands are often stereotyped as purveyors of 1930s–1940s dance band music, many composers have continued to be fascinated by the play of composition and improvisation inherent in large jazz based ensembles. But this gig through Def. Tone 17 will allow listeners to explore the different ways in which the big band has been (re)imagined by contemporary jazz artists; gaining a practical understanding of the creative possibilities of the contemporary big band. A truly one-off experience for those who love all form of jazz.
As well as hearing from this amazing contemporary big band jazz we also have a surprise supporting band to make the whole night a fresh music experience in one of Taunton’s well respected music and culture centre’s.
