Strictly Smokin' Sessions II @ The Black Swan - Sept. 17

Strictly Smokin' returned for a second year under commission from Jazz North East to create new music composed by four members of the Strictly Smokin’ Big Band - hence the four sets with a varying combination of musicians performing in each one. 

This year Graham Don (Piano), Steve Summers (reeds),  Michael Whent (bass guitar),  and Alice Grace (voice) created compositions performed (and conducted by) by the composers themselves with other members of the Big Band, including Michael Lamb, Jamie Toms, Pete Tanton, Kieran Parnaby, Pawel Jedrzejewski and Guy Swinton in support.
