One of the world’s leading and most versatile orchestras, BBC Big Band, visits Worthing’s Assembly Hall on August 24 with an afternoon concert featuring music inspired by some of the world’s greatest film soundtracks.
Having been voted Best Big Band seven times in the British Jazz Awards, most recently in 2013, the world renowned BBC Big Band’s Worthing concert has been inspired by the sounds of cinema. The band performs classic themes from films such as James Bond, Breakfast at Tiffany’s and The Pink Panther as well as contemporary classics Catch Me If You Can and Mission: Impossible.
Since their origins as the BBC Dance Orchestra in 1928, the band has been variously known as the BBC Showband and the BBC Radio Orchestra before being given its current title. The band has played with stars such as George Benson, Van Morrison, Georgie Fame, Tony Bennett, George Shearing, Michel Legrand, Phil Woods, Joe Lovano, Lalo Schifrin, Michael McDonald, Bob Brookmeyer and Ray Charles.
In addition to its regular studio and concert recordings, BBC Big Band is probably best known for its regular Monday night show Big Band Special,broadcastuntil last year on BBC Radio 2, as well its appearances on BBC Radio 3’s Jazz Line Up. Its performances also reach global audiences through its regular broadcasts for the BBC World Service, satellite radio and internet radio.
Building on its strong reputation on the UK and European festival circuits, the BBC Big Band has appeared at the Aberdeen, Gateshead, Cheltenham, Edinburgh, Great North and Brecon jazz festivals, as well as at its annual concerts for London’s Royal Albert Hall BBC Proms and Proms in the Park series. BBC Big Band performed at the Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games with funk legend Maceo Parker.
The Worthing concert unites the famous band with some of the greatest music from throughout cinematic history.
