The Jack Davies Big Band
Bringing together several generations of British jazz musicians and influenced by the tradition of great innovative British big bands, The Jack Davies Big Band draws on the raucous power of Colin Towns' Mask Orchestra, the lyrical melancholy of Kenny Wheeler and the boundary-pushing work of Loose Tubes.
This is big band music which retains the energy and individualism of Duke Ellington, but is infused with the powerful and uncompromising aesthetic of contemporary jazz.
"Jack Davies is producing a very strong and inventive body of work, and he's only just begun." - Colin Towns
