Scarborough Jazz Festival 2017 ( 22 – 24 September) has just announced its line-up and it includes a coup:
Composer/arranger Mike Gibbs will be directing the Hans Koller 17 piece Big Band as part of his 80th birthday celebrations, the birthday itself falling on September 25th.
This Scarborough date is (so far, and as far as we are aware...) the only UK event to be announced/ confirmed.
There also will be a celebration with a stellar line-up in the USA at Berklee in Boston in early October. We understand that other UK dates for this tour are in preparation.
