The Mark Buckingham Big Band presents: "Basie & Beyond" at Jazz Café POSK!
For the evening, the band will play some of the best tunes from the Count Basie library including "April in Paris", "Shiny Stockings", "Flight of the Foo Birds" and many more famous numbers from one of the titans of the Golden era of Big Bands. However, in pure MBBB style, there will be some twists with newer versions of some of the classics as well as some rare gems!
The MBBB was created during the UK lockdown period. Professional musicians were allowed to perform, rehearse and stream, so Mark took advantage of this ruling to get players who were just sitting at home watching the telly or delivering groceries to get them playing again. Since the band has performed in many venues including the Esher theatre, the Bull's Head in Barnes, The Turk's Head in St Margarets and the Hampton Hub Club amongst others. The Band features many veterans of the UK Jazz scene including Giles Straw, Aaron Liddard, Bob McKay, Andy Gibson, Nick Mills and Graham Russell. In the spring of 2023, the MBBB has launched a new show dedicated to the music of arranger and trumpet legend Thad Jones, rebranding itself the Thad Jones Legacy Orchestra for the occasion.
The MARK BUCKINGHAM BIG BAND prezentuje: "Basie & Beyond!.." w Jazz Café POSK!
Tego wieczoru ta znakomita londyńska jazzowa orkiestra zagra jedne z najlepszych utworów Counta Basiego, w tym „April in Paris”, „Shiny Stockings”, „Flight of the Foo Birds” i wiele innych znanych numerów jednego z tytanów Złotej Ery Big Bandów. Dodatkowo, czysto w stylu MBBB, będą pewne zwroty akcji z nowszymi wersjami niektórych klasyków, a także rzadkimi perełkami!
