The Groove Merchant Jazz Orchestra

The Groove Merchant Jazz Orchestra

A young, professional 17-piece big band based in Glasgow, made up of some of the top young jazz talent in Scotland. The band plays a variety of music, from the old school repertoire of Nestico, Ellington, Buddy Rich and Thad Jones, to original material composed by members of the band and other local jazz musicians. The band’s members are all involved in the Scottish jazz scene, with some being members of the National Youth Jazz Orchestra of Scotland, the Tommy Smith Youth Jazz Orchestra, Fat Suit and Square One among others.
