AN AMERICAN JOURNEY
featuring Bill Evans
The SNJO welcomes saxophonist Bill Evans as their guest and invites you to join them on a musical expedition across America from north to south and east to west. Along the way, jazz will meet up with bluegrass, country, soul, and funk to create a fabulous road trip to remember.
Well known for conducting experimental marriages between firmly established but quite distinct forms of American music, Bill Evans’ projects have included such unlikely bedfellows as soul and bluegrass, and jazz and country music.
Here he is reunited with the SNJO to perform a new programme of wild-at-heart, cross-genre music in the true spirit of the west. The music and performance are guaranteed to raise the bar again for jazz music in Scotland and create a wonderful evening of jazz.
A free Pre-show Talk with SNJO and Bill Evans will take before the show, at 6.45pm
