European Jazz Stage: Bigger Bands
In this European Jazz Stage we made room for some outstanding Big Bands. We had bas player, composer, arranger John Clayton as a guest-conductor of the Metropole Orchestra. He brought his finest arrangements, which he normally plays with his own Clayton-Hamilton Jazz Orchestra, but are now tested on the highly talented musicians of the Metropole Orchestra. There were also two treats from the North Sea Jazz Festival in this show. The Jazz Orchestra of the Concertgebouw and The Dutch Jazz Orchestra. The first Big Band you’ll hear with two outstanding singers who are two generations apart and the second is paying tribute to one of the founding fathers of modern Dutch Jazz, pianist, trumpeter, composer, arranger, mathematician Rob Madna.
