Billy, Ballamy and the BBC Big Band!

 

 2010-08-02 17:38:17

Legendary British guitarist/composer Billy Jenkins will bring his 2010 renaissance to a climax at the London Jazz Festival by performing for the first time with the BBC Big Band.

Following the release of his new album, 'I Am A Man From Lewisham' and the forthcoming Born Again (and the religion is the blues) that demonstrate the Jenkins' Mojo is still working to full effect, this is a rare and timely London appearance.

The concert, at The Purcell Room at the South Centre on Sunday 21st November will feature three adventurous large scale arrangements (newly commissioned by BBC Radio 3) of Billy's music by Iain Ballamy.

Ballamy, one of the world's finest saxophonists and a long serving member of Billy Jenkins' extended musical family, will also guest as a soloist.

The first half will feature Billy's new Trio Blues Suburbia with guest Iain Ballamy, before welcoming the BBC Big Band onto the stage for the second half of what will be a truly momentous meeting of disparate energies.

The concert will be recorded by BBC R3 for future transmission.
