Part of Snape Proms

NYJO presents an evening of music to make you groove. From the forties to the noughties, classic big band charts by Duke Ellington and Count Basie rub shoulders with hits from Kool & the Gang (Open Sesame), Kylie (Can’t Get You Out of My Head) and Tower of Power (What is Hip?). Add a sprinkling of tunes by today’s finest jazz composers (including Jason Yarde and Julian Siegel) and the scintillating virtuosity of NYJO’s exceptional musicians, and the result is a brilliantly eclectic high-energy evening.
