Another…100 Years of Big Bands Len Phillips Swing Orchestra featuring Matt Ford & Nicola Emmanuelle
Following the massive success of 100 Years Of Big Bands (the hit Sky Arts televised concert), the iTunes chart-topping LP Swing Orchestra return with a whole new programme, once again celebrating a century of swing. Beginning with Louis Armstrong’s New Orleans and the Paul Whiteman Orchestra, we trace the development of big bands through the golden age of Duke Ellington, Count Basie, Benny Goodman and Glenn Miller to the contemporary tracks of Michael Bublé and Harry Connick Jr.
Paying homage to the great big band singers, Frank Sinatra, Ella Fitzgerald, Nat “King” Cole and Peggy Lee along the way, feet will be tapping to the sheer power of a 17 piece swing orchestra.
“It was a joy to be up close and personal with the Len Phillips Band”
“…glorious, and in no small part thanks to you and your marvellous orchestra”
“The perfect ingredients for a superb afternoon of music”
