ToddGordon & Back to Basie Orchestra (Bridgewater Hall, Sep 24, 2015) copy

It was such a pleasure to return to The Bridgewater Hall in Manchester – and once again with the Back to Basie Orchestra.

The show featured terrific arrangements by Billy May, Quincy Jones, Billy Byers and Neal Hefti, along with a couple of new ones by my pianist and musical director, David Patrick. Our next collective outing is on December 30th at Warwick Arts Centre in Coventry where Jacqui Dankworth will be joining us for The Frank & Ella Show.
