ROSE ROOM ORCHESTRA FANTASTIQUE
Calton, 17 Bain St, Glasgow G40 2JZ, United Kingdom
Scotland’s leading ‘Hot Club’ swing band joins forces with top Scottish saxophonist, Scottish Jazz Awards 2017 ‘Best Instrumentalist’, Konrad Wiszniewski and the award-winning Capella String Quartet to celebrate the vintage sound of the 1930s.
Led by virtuoso violinist, and Scottish Jazz Awards 2017 ‘Best Vocalist’, Seonaid Aitken, Glasgow-based Rose Room also features Scotland’s No.1 guitar maker Jimmy Moon on double bass with Danny Kyle Award-winning Swing Guitars’ Tam Gallagher and Tom Watson on rhythm and solo guitars respectively.
With the help of Wiszniewski’s "ravishingly beautiful tone” and the "gorgeous romantic accompaniment” of the Capella String Quartet, the result is a classy interpretation of Rose Room's gypsy jazz repertoire fit for a 1930s dance hall.
