We are proud to announce the launch of our newest CD – masterminded by Director of Music Richard Allain and recorded during bicentennial year. In his sleevenotes musician and broadcaster Pete Long writes: “Jazz at the 200 showcases thirteen superb young musicians in new performances of jazz standards. It is heartening to hear the great men and women of jazz – Ella, Sinatra, Simone, Webster, Cole and Monk etc. – inspire a whole new generation of musicians. Not only does this album pay tribute to them, but it is also testament to the skill and passion of young people, and the enduring appeal of such a versatile art form.”
