Andrew Linham Jazz Orchestra


[United Kingdom] London London
ProfessionalBigBand

The Andrew Linham Jazz Orchestra is a contemporary big band playing the original music of leader and composer Andrew Linham. They premiered their first album 'Weapons of Mass Distraction' in 2017 having formed in 2014 for the performance of two suites of music 'The Linferno Suite' (2013) and 'Theme Music of Anarchic Animals' (2015). They annually perform a 'Christ-Mess Extravaganza' at The Vortex and are a hidden gem in the London Jazz scene. Featuring a wealth of young talent, this millenial big band enjoys pastiche and wacky humour led with irreverance celebrating the wealth of diversity of style in the history of jazz. Downbeat said of them “The cleverly titled Weapons of Mass Distraction firmly establishes the Andrew Linham Jazz Orchestra has a signification addition to today’s big band scene and a group that deserves wider recognition at the international level.” Ed Enright, Downbeat Review (Editor’s Pick) December 2017
