The Scottish National Jazz Orchestra directed by Tommy Smith proudly presents Mozart’s 9th Piano Concerto & Gershwin’s Rhapsody In Blue featuring special guest, Makoto Ozone

Inverness, Eden Court     25th Apr 2014 at 7.30 pm 01463 234 234  
  Online Box Office                     
Edinburgh, Queen’s Hall   26th April 2014 at 7.30 pm 0131 668 2019    
Glasgow, Royal Conservatoire  27th April 2014 at 7.30 pm   0141 332 5057           
This April sees a welcome shower of shimmering piano notes over Scotland as the Scottish National Jazz Orchestra (SNJO) premieres a new arrangement of Mozart’s 9th Piano Concerto. 
The SNJO has invited the superbly gifted pianist, Makoto Ozone to create a vivid and inventive re-imagining of Mozart’s 9th Piano Concerto for piano and Jazz Big Band. It promises to be a unique and memorable experience where the freedom of jazz is wedded to classical discipline.  The result will be an enthralling addition to the jazz repertoire. Tommy Smith’s stunning arrangement of Gershwin’s Rhapsody in Blue also offers the ideal complement to Ozone’s Mozart, matching two iconic compositions in an intriguing programme full of life-affirming wit and artistic verve.
Makoto Ozone is no stranger to some of the most prestigious concert platforms in the world, having shared the stage with, among others, The New York Philharmonic Orchestra and the Shanghai Symphony Orchestra. He is recognized worldwide as a classical and jazz pianist of equal accomplishment, and has made more than 34 recordings, many of them with his own jazz trio. He is noted too for his collaborations with, among many others, Gary Burton, Chick Corea, Ellis Marsalis and the SNJO itself on their 2011 album Celebration.
The SNJO have begun 2014 with ambitious ideas, innovative programmes and bravura performances and earned standing ovations during recent shows featuring Kurt Elling in Syntopicon, and Revisiting Coltrane with Courtney Pine. More than that, audiences have been a bit shaken and more than a little stirred by the full measure of commitment from an impressive repertoire orchestra.
Audiences in Scotland will be the first to appreciate the SNJO’s vibrantly, fresh approach to Mozart’s 9th Piano Concertoand to Gershwin’s Rhapsody in Blue, two universally popular classical pieces. They can also look forward to an evening of sheer, unashamed enjoyment in the company of Makoto Ozone and Scotland’s National Jazz Orchestra.
NB: There will be a free preconcert talk at 6.45pm before each concert.
