NYOS Jazz Orchestra – Summer Tour 2017
NYOS Jazz Orchestra present a programme that takes them on a 'Road Trip Across America'. The orchestra is led, as always by Music director Malcolm Edmonstone and Principal Conductor Andrew Bain and the featured guest artist this summer is the amazing Scottish guitarist Malcolm MacFarlane.
NYOS Jazz Orchestra will be playing some seriously funky music, revisiting Donald Fagan’s seminal solo debut Nightfly, and these concerts will involve a vocal jazz ensemble, one of the Jazz programme’s most exciting recent developments.
And with Malcolm MacFarlane involved, it won’t surprise you to know the second half will feature some of the legendary American guitar gods you’d expect, including some classic charts from Pat Metheny.
