The SYJO Legacy Band features musicians who once played in Southampton Youth Jazz Orchestra and have now gone onto forge careers in music in their own right. Often cited by leading UK jazz institutions as one of the top youth organisations of its type in the country, it is no surprise that the musicians who are playing tonight are massively in demand and have resumes who read like a who’s who in jazz. Tonight’s band (young as they are) have worked with stars such as Wynton Marsalis, Courtney Pine, Julian Joseph, Barbara Thompson, Dave Holland, Snarky Puppy and many others - not bad?
The gig will feature many of these skilled soloists playing a mixture of classic swing, contemporary tunes and funk.
