The Memphis Belle Swing Orchestra, August 2016

20th August – I had a treat of playing with a fabulous jazz orchestra, The Memphis Belle Swing Orchestra. Formed in 1989 especially for the David Putnam movie Memphis Belle the orchestra has been maintained as a touring band by legendary bandleader Greg Francis ever since. I’ve played in a few jazz bands and big bands before but never in authentic wartime uniform. I enjoyed it!  You can find out more about the orchestra through the website UK Music Productions and watch the band’s appearance on BBC television back in 2000 here – fabulous.
