Everybody loves Basie, right? Well — at your request — we at The Straight No Chaser Big Band have the pleasure of honouring this great band with our recreation of the great Basie albums “The Atomic Mr Basie”
We’ve sourced all the charts (some on loan — thanks!) and have begun rehearsing in preparation for the gig on Thursday, 20 November at The Brunswick in Hove.
This energetic album will form the nucleus of music (bad pun intended), but we’ll also throw in many of your other jazz favourites. Many thanks to those of you we saw at our “season opener” at The Hassocks Hotel with Jacqui Sampson giving another electric vocal performance. We hope to see you all soon.
