Callum Au @ Ronnie’s 9/14
26 August, 2014
Two of Callum’s bands will be appearing at Ronnie Scott’s Jazz Club this coming September:
The first band, his new quintet, will feature the music of Bob Brookmeyer and Gerry Mulligan, alongside some originals in a similar style, with baritone saxophonist Richard Shepherd and an all-star rhythm section of Chris Eldred, Matt Skelton, and Jeremy Brown. You can hear this on Monday September 8th at 11pm at the Late Late Show, hosted by top saxophonist Alex Garnett.
Secondly, the Callum Au Big Band will be returning to Ronnie’s for the main set on 15/9/2014. After selling out a double show last July with the West Side Story Suite, the band returns to play Callum’s new version of Rhapsody in Blue, featuring James Pearson on solo Piano and Pete Long on solo Clarinet. Vocalist Emma Smith will also be featured, singing arrangements originally done for Ella Fitzgerald, as well as some new charts by top UK arranger Tommy Laurence. This show is sure to be in high demand, so book now!
