Programme Note

The weekend of Scottish ensembles continues with a visit from the National Youth Jazz Orchestra of Scotland, whose Late Night Prom marks the Shakespeare anniversary with Duke Ellington’s jazz tribute to the Bard, Such Sweet Thunder.

With instruments taking the roles of actors, Ellington’s piece broke new ground when it appeared in 1957 as part of a 12-part Shakespeare-themed album, and it still feels entirely fresh today. The NYJOS welcomes back previous collaborators - saxophonist Iain Ballamy performing some of his compositions such as All Men Amen and Floater along with pianist/vocalist Liane Carroll - to perform a series of arrangements by Malcolm Edmonstone, including songs made popular by Frank Sinatra, The Beatles, Carole King and others.
