First broadcast:
Monday 27 October 2008

Jez Nelson presents a gig recorded at Birmingham's CBSO Centre by Django Bates's StoRMChaser big band. Composed composed mostly of students, the 19-strong group has been under the direction of Bates during his tenure as Professor of Rhythmic Music in Copenhagen. The concert coincides with the release of Bates's album, Spring is Here...(shall we dance)?, with both containing his trademark humour, eccentricity and whirlwind rhythms.

Bates is a British-born pianist who studied at the Royal College of Music, only to leave after two weeks due to its opposition to jazz. He later rose to prominence with the large group Loose Tubes, regarded by many to be among the most influential outfits on the 1980s London scene. Since then he has led several of his own large format bands, including Delightful Precipice and the Powder Collapse Orchestra.
