That valuable and unique institution now in its third decade - the London Jazz Orchestra - has announced a new series at the Vortex (the Second Sunday sessions) beginning on Sunday 8th September at 4:00pm and continuing on the 2nd of each month at the same time.
The orchestra members are all composer/performers and this session will feature Henry Lowther as composer and soloist. (Incidentally, this gig is definitely recommended if you have a birthday and can get your request in early: Henry's Happy Birthday chart is brilliant.)
There is also a very special gig on October 18th at the Guildhall School at 8:00pm. The band will be performing the music of their late pianist Pete Saberton exclusively as a tribute and be joined by the Guildhall Jazz Band directed by Scott Stroman. The concert is to be recorded and later released (along with subsequent studio recordings) with help of the funds raised to support Saberton during his illness.
