Album Notes
The Andrew Linham Jazz Orchestra is an 17 piece contemporary big band playing the music of Andrew Linham. Since the 2013 premier of ‘The Linferno Suite’ which was Andrew’s first major work, this and other compositions have been performed by the jazz orchestra since 2014. They recently premiered Andrew’s second major work ‘The Theme Music of Anarchic Animals’ to critical acclaim at the London Jazz Festival 2015. With a full and bristling pad of madcap compositions ranging from traditional big band writing to ridiculous pop power ballads and the wealth of farcical music in between, this band seeks to play serious jazz music in a not so serious way.

The band was described by one listener as ‘tragic, hilarious, dark and downright bizarre’, with the London Jazz Festival describing it as ‘Eccentric big band swing’. Andrew has always stated assuredly that he wants it to be a loud visceral remedy of jazz based insanity to warm the cockles of your heart.

This new album celebrates the music made, exploring topics such as Sharks, Apples, Waitresses and Lost Dogs called Fenton.
