Birmingham Conservatoire Jazz Orchestra plays the music of Bob Brookmeyer, Jim McNeely and Maria Schneider. The musical output of these three luminaries of Big Band composition from the US is a benchmark for all jazz composers today. They simultaneously look back to the origins of large ensemble writing in jazz, encapsulating the essence of swing and blues such as Ellington, Basie and Thad Jones, while striving to look ahead through innovative orchestrations and expanded forms.
