SNJO Take the Scenic Route from Edinburgh to Glasgow (via Sage Gateshead!)

The familiar opening bars of Take Five were the soundtrack to sixties swing and mid-twentieth century cool. The tune made Dave Brubeck a household name, but also changed perceptions of jazz as a niche art form.  
Throughout his long and fulfilled career, Brubeck created stunning music of depth and breadth. He consolidated his initial success by continuing to explore unusual time signatures, but a gift for counterpoint and harmony also contributed to his widespread popularity.
The Scottish National Jazz Orchestra has specially commissioned respected composer Bill Dobbins, currently professor of Jazz at the Eastman School of Music in Rochester, New York, to arrange Brubeck’s music and provide new insights into his most iconic compositions.
The SNJO is joined by Bill Dobbins at the piano and John Nugent on alto saxophone to interpret the complex and deeply spiritual work of a composer who remains loved and revered in equal measure.
