Live – Bansnagu Orchestra – My Old Life

Great¬†first jazz gig of 2015 @thehideaway jazz club in South London last Sunday. I just had to share this with you. Excellent original charts and some newly scored arrangements by many of the guys in the band and of course Paul Boothe (tenor sax) who leads the orchestra. Its a ‘world music meets modern big band jazz’ kind of sound I guess.

On this gig we had guest vocalist Oli Rockberger (vocals and piano), a British singer song writer based in New York. The track included below also features an excellent trumpet solo from Ryan Quigley. Its definitely worth a listen.
