Big Band Night at Fringe Club: Island Express Jazz Orchestra
Why We Recommend it
Island Express Jazz Orchestra, a 17-strong band from Hong Kong, will perform contemporary compositions and arrangements, as well as a selection of classics, at The Fringe Club’s recurring Big Band Night.
Formed in 2010, the Island Express Jazz Orchestra consists of 17 members, ranging from music professionals to businessmen. The orchestra specialises in large-ensemble arrangements by modern jazz composers, including Bob Mintzer, Frank mantooth, Pat Metheny and Matt Catinggub, as well as fresh arrangements of standards such as Ella Fitzgerald.
This show is presented by the Fringe Club as a part of their “Jazz-Go-Central, Jazz-Go-Fringe” project, which was founded to create a more fertile and vibrant Jazz and music ecology in Hong Kong. The Big Band Night is a recurring event in which various local jazz big bands are invited to perform at Fringe Dairy.
