Raving reviews for SNJO at Glasgow Jazz Festival
The Scottish National Jazz Orchestra, with its Director Tommy Smith, received raving reviews after this year's Glasgow Jazz Festival for their performance of eleven original arrangements honouring the work of John Coltrane.
     Joe contributed a new arrangement of Coltrane's "Naima": "Inspiration comes from the most unlikely of places. When I sat down to write my arrangement of Naima for the SNJO, one of my own original compositions, 'Snow Fall In Central Park', came to mind. For some reason I heard Coltrane's melody superimposed over the form of my own song. I was pleasantly surprised to find that, with a little bit of massaging, the idea worked." (Joe Locke)
