Len Phillips Swing Orchestra With Matt Ford & Nicola Emmanuelle

About

Celebrating a century of swing, beginning with Louis Armstrong’s New Orleans and the Paul Whiteman Orchestra, we trace the development of big bands through the golden age of Duke Ellington, Count Basie, Benny Goodman and Glenn Miller to the contemporary tracks of Michael Bublé and Harry Connick Jr. Paying homage to the great big band singers, Frank Sinatra, Ella Fitzgerald, Nat “King” Cole and Peggy Lee along the way, feet will be tapping to the sheer power of a 17 piece swing orchestra.

Heard regularly on BBC Radio 2 and Jazz FM, the Len Phillips Swing Orchestra is Britain’s most popular big band. Their lockdown livestream series attracted over 100,000 views and included the very first streamed big band concert from London’s iconic Abbey Road Studios. Matthew Ford is perhaps best known for his work with the John Wilson Orchestra, including 6 appearances at the BBC Proms. Playing the part of Ella Fitzgerald in the West End show The Rat Pack: Live From Las Vegas, Nicola Emmanuelle is one of the most outstanding singers in Britain today.

Rhapsody In Blue, Sing Sing Sing, In The Mood, New York New York, Fever, Splanky, S’ Wonderful, Moondance and many more!

“It was a joy to be up close and personal with the Len Phillips band” Len Goodman

“The perfect ingredients for a superb afternoon of music” Eastbourne Herald

“Ford is the archetypal crooner in the mould of Sinatra and Crosby” David Mellor, Mail on Sunday
