Cool IJO gig this weekend

Last year the Impressions in Jazz Orchestra tried something a bit different. Well, quite different! We assembled a small version of the orchestra (five horns, two strings, bass and drums) and let the audience tell us what to play. No rehearsal, and no idea until we hit the stage as to what was going to happen. And it worked! Everyone involved had a fab time. And so this coming Saturday we'll try it again!

"Whose Solo Is It This Time? - Explorations in audience-directed musical improvisation".

The show at the NAC last night was great! I hope there will be a repeat again next year... perhaps sooner?

Great, glad you liked the show, whoever you are. ;)

To see the show again you'll need to pester Adrian. We'll probably do it next year, but as for more than once a year I don't know if that's in the cards.
