Mark Lockheart’s Orchestral Jazz Suite

In association with Jazz in Reading

Days on Earth is Mark Lockheart’s most ambitious and personal work to date. The recently released album, receiving great reviews in the UK and Europe, features a jazz sextet and 30-piece orchestra. This concert is a special reworking of the six movement piece arranged for a star studded ensemble, along with new music especially composed for this tour. Many of Mark’s eclectic tastes and influences are here, from cutting edge improvising, rich orchestral textures with nods to Bacharach and Stravinsky, and even 70s funk.

The jazz sextet with guests plays a first set, followed by the performance of Days on Earth.
