Long Range Weather Report

The Scottish National Jazz Orchestra (SNJO) under the direction of Tommy Smith take on board some big names next February - Composer/arranger Vince Mendoza, saxist Bob Mintzer and former Weather Report drummer Peter Erskine (pictured left) to work with the band in a tribute to the legendary jazz/rock outfit Weather Report. Although the dates are all north of the border a trip to Edinburgh is a viable proposition for any interested parties in the north-east and beyond.
For more details of the project which is sponsored by  Creative Scotland, Grasshoppers Hotel and Arts and Business Scotland go to http://www.snjo.co.uk/index.php?id=424.
