Description

The Scottish National Jazz Orchestra present a programme of the classic music of Miles Davis and Gil Evans, which Kenny Mathieson in the Scotsman described as "a triumph of imaginative programming and incisive playing." Under Tommy Smith's direction they perform all the music Evans arranged for the classic 1957 Miles Ahead session in the form of a continuous suite. The guest soloist, the Canadian jazz musician Ingrid Jensen is in outstanding form on trumpet and flugelhorn. Recorded 2000, live at The Matt Thomson Hall, Glasgow. Personnel: Ingrid Jensen (trumpet, flugelhorn), Tommy Smith (conductor), Belinda Gough (flute, alto flute), Mhari (clarinet), Michael Huntriss, Allon Beauvoisin (bass clarinet), Laura Macdonald (alto saxophone), Eddie Severn, Hedley Benson, Tom MacNiven, Colin Steele (trumpet), Charles Floyd (French horn), Chris Grieve, Mark Boyd, Ronnie MacNiven (trombone), Lorna McDonald (bass trombone), Andy McKreal (tuba), Orlando Le Fleming (bass), John Rae (drums)
