The legendary London Jazz Composers Orchestra has been at the forefront of improvised music for over 50 years.
The group features top European musicians from both the jazz and classical field.
Highly acclaimed in North America and Europe, the pioneering orchestra is a Who’s Who of virtuoso improvising musicians, exploring the relationship and tension between composed and improvised music and between new music and jazz.
Director Barry Guy’s compositions provide a structure for the musicians’ explosive solo and collective improvisations
« LJCO is a band of soloists, and as such everybody is playing for their life. There are no passengers. The LJCO in concert is as much about physical force of sound as it is about musical information – it’s a portrait of the future. » Barry Guy
