Live Review: Studio 9 Orchestra at KineoJazz

Studio 9 Orchestra

KineoJazz @ The Basement, Brighton

Sunday 14th June, 2015

 

    This gig marked the return of the successful KineoJazz series from a few years ago which featured some big names of jazz such as Lonnie Liston Smith, Joe Lee Wilson and Claire Martin.

    The band performed their usual eclectic mixture of contemporary jazz repertoire mixed with Mingus and Radiohead. I’m not a huge fan of Radiohead but the arrangements seem to work and there was plenty for soloists to get their teeth into. The highlight for me was Moanin’ featuring Andy Pickett on baritone saxophone. This is a fantastic venue for live jazz and one to look out for in the future.
