The finest of Yorkshire’s jazz talent come together for this special project by Submotion Orchestra founder, Tommy Evans. The specially assembled big band will perform The Green Seagull, a suite of music inspired by the life and writing of Evans’ own uncle. His compositions weave together jazz, folk, Indian and classical music influences into a big band sound.

Having featured as the evening concert on BBC Radio 3, and won composition and big band awards, The Green Seagull lands at the Howard Assembly Room.

In association with Fusebox.

Unfortunately I missed the concert in Leeds but did manage to catch up with the T.E.O. at the Barbican as part of the London jazz Festival. This is a fantastic band of very talented musicians - instrumentalists and singers - and The Green Seagull has a perfect blend of compositional and improvised passages. Tommy's arrangements and rich harmonies provide a springboard for some highly impressive solo work form the sax and brass section, but the real tour de force is the instrumental use of 3 singers who create moments of real excitement and beauty. 2012 was a very strong year for British jazz releases but this is right at the top of them. Let's hope they get the chance to tour the Green Seagull Suite again soon.
