NYOS Jazz Orchestra Summer Tour ‘The Power of Nature’

This summer NYOS Jazz Orchestra presents a profusion of cool jazz in a two-part concert. We celebrate the music of Joe Zawinul’s groundbreaking group Weather Report. The 1970s were one of the most exciting periods in jazz, and after the emergence of rock and roll, the inevitable fusion of jazz and rock came of age. Never more so than in the music of Weather Report, blending grooves and improvisation, through-composed melodies and evolving ensemble textures.

The Jazz Orchestra is then joined by beatboxer, sound artist and vocal sculptor Jason Singh. Jason is a composer, solo artist and collaborator who is well known on Skye for his work with Atlas arts, with Gaelic singer Anne Martin and the World Premiere of ‘Lahira’ at last year’s Festival.

Director of Jazz at NYOS Malcolm Edmonstone has worked closely with Jason to select aspects of his extensive creative projects, and arranged these for NYOS Jazz Orchestra and vocalists. A challenging yet mouth-watering prospect, we hope you agree.
