Jazz Line-Up introduced by Julian Joseph featuring the 2010 European Jazz Orchestra conducted by Tadej Tomsic (Slovenia) Every year the European Broadcasting Union (EBU) create a Big Band hosted by a European County. 2010 was the turn of a 17-piece band which was created with as many countries, the UK being represented by Guitarist Mark McKnight from Belfast. Each year a new conductor, new compositions and a new line-up of hand-picked musicians, aged 18-30 - go on new adventures, following new itineraries. Since the start of the EJO in 1998, 226 European musicians have participated and 175 concerts have been arranged in 33 countries in Europe. The BBC hosted the event in 2006.
The programme also features music from the Rush Hour Jazz Series, with the Ben Markland Quintet and the Percy Pursglove Quartet, recorded at Birmingham's Symphony Hall.
