The Scottish National Jazz Orchestra performs a programme of music from jazz luminaries Duke Ellington, Woody Herman, Count Basie and Dizzy Gillespie. You can also hear Gil Evans's arrangements of music from Porgy and Bess made famous in a recording by legendary jazz trumpeter Miles Davis on which Gunther Schuller himself performed. One of the cornerstones of contemporary Scottish jazz, Tommy Smith, leads the band and Schuller conducts.

Joe Lovano joins the orchestra celebrating great, big band, jazz music: unexplored and traditional; universal and native; emphatic and reflective, all played by the finest musicians from Scotland's vibrant jazz scene.
