Terry Pack’s ‘Trees’

Terry Pack’s Trees is an unfeasibly large ensemble of between 20 and 50 musicians based in Brighton. The band plays new music, written by its members, most of it by bassist Terry Pack and flautist, Hilary Burt. The band includes a mix of top professionals, busy pros and semi pros. It was Terry’s aim to be inclusive and to make a big sound, which is why the group includes so many players and singers. Composer Mike Gibbs is a fan. The band will be playing music from their first album, Heart of Oak, released in 2017.

Mark Nightingale/Martin Shaw Quintet plays the ‘Brass-Player’s Songbook’

Ex-NYJO buddies Mark and Martin have consistently been first-call for countless larger ensembles over the years. This venture is a rare chance to hear them fronting a quintet alongside some of their favourite rhythm section players. The theme they have chosen is to celebrate the compositions of fellow trumpeters and trombonists (Dizzy Gillespie, Thad Jones, JJ Johnson et al) in a melodic evening of swinging jazz.
