Wiltshire's young jazz musicians premiere progressive new work

Wiltshire Youth Jazz Orchestra
Mike Daniels
Steve Banks Guitar

Wiltshire Youth Jazz Orchestra join forces with guitarist, composer and educator Steve Banks, premiering jazz orchestra arrangements of his critically acclaimed album ‘Emboldened’, in collaboration with drummer and composer Jonathan Silk.

“Purposeful precision and smart invention . . . tightly written, long unfolding melodic structures weaving the musicians into braided soundscapes . . . deserving of a much wider audience⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️”
– Jazzwise review of ‘Emboldened’

This concert will also premiere big band arrangements by emerging young jazz artists and WYJO members Nathaniel Evans and Thomas Sladden of their own compositions.

Led by musical director Mike Daniels, WYJO work with some of the finest jazz performers in the UK, and provide young jazz musicians the chance to develop their skills and experience.
