18 December Monday – Sydney Jazz Orchestra
Monday 18 December 2017, 8.00pm
The Sydney Jazz Orchestra returns to Foundry616 with new charts, a great line up of musicians and a night packed with music that has palpable energy!
The weather is warm, and the start of the Christmas holidays season is always anticipated with enthusiasm. For music lovers, the best way to get into the mood is to cut loose, sit back and enjoy a dazzling performance of big band jazz with the Sydney Jazz Orchestra.
Every appearance of this stellar 17 piece ensemble produces new arrangements, and great guests. For this gig, dynamic Sydney vocalist Jerry Van Der Slot returns, fresh from performing on the Australian and New Zealand tour of the Bootleg Beatles. Jerry’s ability to engage the audience makes him a great singer, while meshing perfectly with the lush sound of the SJO.
Fabulous arrangements and compositions will be the feature, from internationally respected US writers, Rick Hirsch, Mike Crotty and Stan Kenton, together with the SJO’s own saxophonist/composer/director, Tim Oram, who continues to produce his innovative arrangements.
The Sydney Jazz Orchestra is the embodiment of cool with a trademark of precision and balance. The energy and mood changes from funk to swing, groove and Latin, with blues, rock and pop moments in the finely honed musicianship of the cream of Sydney’s jazz and commercial players.
For a night of fabulous big band dynamics performed by some of the best in the business, don’t miss the Sydney Jazz Orchestra’s final gig for 2017! Come and get that holiday feeling in swingin’ style.
“Oram’s impressive arrangements maintain a modern big band feel without straying into ‘out there’ territory. Never loses sight of its swing heritage”. John McBeath (The Australian).
