Torah is orchestral jazz at its most powerful, creative and expressive: a tour de force for tenor saxophone and orchestra that takes a spiritual journey through the blues and jazz stratospheres. Encapsulating the first five books of the Bible, Torah tells the story of creation in music that is vividly enacted, robust and beautifully detailed, approachable, stimulating and rewarding.
Internationally renowned, saxophonist and composer, Tommy Smith, leads the Scottish National Jazz Orchestra, on a spiritual journey of discovery. His sweeping compositions describing the titanic struggle between good and evil, produce exhilarating and relentlessly creative playing from the cream of Scotland’s thriving jazz scene, the SNJO.
“Torah represents Smith’s most exhilarating and playing to date, couched in a sweeping series of compositions that position him as one of modern jazz’s most intriguing and compelling large ensemble composers.” All About Jazz
