BigISH Band at LJF + Ronnie’s SOLD OUT + Downbeat Review for ‘Weapons of Mass Distraction’

A huge thanks to all that attended my London Jazz Festival Show last month. The performance was sold out and we received a favourable review from

‘[Matt Roberts'] crafty and intelligent arrangements were expertly played by the ensemble, which is made up of some of the finest young players in London’.

This month’s Matt Roberts Big Band performance at Ronnie Scott’s has sold out. Many thanks to all that have bought tickets. We’re going to raise the roof!

I’m delighted to announce that the ‘Andrew Linham Jazz Orchestra‘ album ‘Weapons of Mass Distraction’, that I had the pleasure of playing on, has received a gushing review from none other than Downbeat Magazine.

‘…one of the boldest—and most eccentric—large jazz ensembles performing today. This is a group with chops and personality to spare, not to mention a madcap sense of humour… …They play with guts and attitude, and manage to inject outrageous humor into even the most demanding of musical passages, striking a perfect balance between the sublime and the ridiculous. The cleverly titled Weapons Of Mass Distraction firmly establishes the Andrew Linham Jazz Orchestra as a significant addition to today’s big band scene and a group that deserves wider recognition at the international level.’
