In a premier Wellington performance Rodger Fox s Jazz Orchestra will deliver a rollicking two-hour concert which will relive the glory days of the big band era and add a contemporary nod as to how those bands might play some of those hits today. With The Kings of Swing, from then to now Fox s Wellington Jazz Orchestra will brew up a storm of rhythmic grooves, lilting virtuoso solos and sounds to make you feel great as the music of Glenn Miller, Count Basie, Woody Herman, Duke Ellington, Artie Shaw, Buddy Rich and more is served up. The hits will keep coming as the 18-piece orchestra, featuring Colin Hem- mingson as one of five saxophone players, delve into the classics like Moonlight Serenade, In the Mood, Cute, Tuxedo Junction, Fever and more. Fox says a number of the famous songs will get an updating. What we have done is updated sev- eral of the songs, he says. I came across a whole lot of arrange- ments of the big band classics done by Bill Cunliffe [the American pianist who played at Expressions in August] and Bob Mintzer [the sax-playing arranger previously here with The Yellow Jackets]. They ve updated them, so I guess we we are saying this might be what would happen to the music of, say Glenn Miller, [if he] was alive now. The essence is big band swing, very much so, but with a taste of something different for about a quarter of the 20 or so songs we will be playing. If you love your swing and your big bands this is the concert to be at, the enthusiastic Fox says. The veteran New Zealand jazz exponent expects the night s fare to appeal to all ages. The era of swing was the 1940s but it s timeless and there s interest in it across all the ages. There s swing dance clubs and most of the people there, into that, are in their early 20s. I think the audience will be across the board . . . people will will get off on the music, he says. Vocalist Erna Ferry will leaven the musical mix, singing several songs including some from Ella Fitzgerald. Fox is again happy to bring his show to Expressions Genesis Theatre. I am a big fan of the Expressions venue, Fox says. It s a very good theatre for the audi- ence to watch and for the musicians to play. It s the whole package, with the lighting, the sound, all the facilities and the management there too . . . it all stamps it as one of the best operations around. And the audiences there for the jazz shows I have put on, whether it s the youth orchestra or touring artists, have been very good and enthusiastic. As a venue Expressions is really stamping itself as a regional asset. The word is getting round, Fox says. The Kings of Swing with the Rodger Fox Wellington Jazz Orchestra play Expressions on Thursday, November 3. Tickets are $35 adult and $15 student. See expressions.org.nz. Matinee preview of 'Tom Jones' musical Expressions hosts a performance Boutique Opera s forthcoming pro- duction of the musical farce Tom Jones this Sunday, October 23. With songs by Edward German, it is based on the famous Henry Fielding novel of the same name. Created by director Alison Hodge and musical director Michael Vinten, Tom Jones is a classic tale of love and lechery, virtue and villainy, honour and obstinacy. Tom is played by young Wellington tenor Jonathan Abernethy, his lady love Sophia by soprano Rose Blake, and her blustering father Squire Western by baritone Roger Wilson. The Expressions show is at 2pm. Tickets, from Expressions, $35 (adults), $25 (seniors and unwaged), $15 (students).
