Big Band Britannia: Inspirations and Collaborations
In a concert from the Barbican in London, Julian Joseph and Geoffrey Smith explore the history of the British big band. Guests include Cleo Laine, Wynton Marsalis and Stan Tracey.
Jazz Line-Up features a specially-assembled big band led by Guy Barker and special guests including Cleo Laine, Wynton Marsalis, Stan Tracey, Bobby Wellins, Soweto Kinch, Jason Yarde, and many more. This concert was recorded last year at London's Barbican to celebrate the British Big Band in all its styles and guises.
Julian Joseph and Geoffrey Smith take us though this evocative journey that features an all-star cast that sadly included the last broadcast by British veteran trumpeter Harry Beckett.
