World-renowned trumpeter and composer Terence Blanchard, who was main guest of World Soundtrack Awards 2017 festival, will be part of the EFG London Jazz Festival (11-19 November 2017) tonight, joining the BBC Concert Orchestra with his Quintet Band to premiere a new extended piece “Herbie Hancock: By Himself”.
The piece, inspired by Hancock’s impressionistic piano solos, will be complemented with music drawn from the composer’s score for the recent Robert de Niro film ‘The Comedian (2016)’.
But that’s not all, as the night will have a double-session with the UK premiere of Joe Zawinul’s grand orchestral score ‘Stories of the Danube’, performed by the BBC Concert Orchestra conducted by Kristjan Järvi and featuring Django Bates as soloist.
