Tommy Evans Orchestra The Green Seagull
Winner of the British Composers Award 2011!
Tommy Evans has written a suite of pieces dedicated to his eccentric but much admired uncle. Evans’ music mixes jazz, Indian and folk with shifting time signatures and odd harmonics yet the result is fresh and accessible: tuneful, soulful yet spiked with hypnotic grooves. His 12-piece orchestra assembles some of the finest musicians in the north of England and includes three female vocalists on the front line.
Conductor: Tommy Evans: Kari Nergaard-BleiviK (vocals); Ruby Wood (vocals); Anna Stott (vocals); Matt Roberts (trumpet); Bobby Beddoe (sax); Russ Henderson (sax); Si Kaylor (sax); Rob Mitchel (sax); Nick Tyson (guitar); Jamil Sheriff (piano); Dave Kane (bass); Kris Wright (drums)
