Video: Matt Anderson's Jig Jag Jug
The Dankworth Prize for Composition was recently announced and LCoM alumnus Matt Anderson scooped the small ensemble prize for his work, Jig Jag Jug.
The inspiration for the piece came from the beautiful landscapes of his home, the North Yorkshire Moors. As a nod to this, Matt has released a video of the composition accompanied by photography of the area.
Many of the personnel of the band will be familiar to NJN readers, with many having come through the jazz degree programme at LCoM -
Matt Anderson - Tenor & Composition
Matt Roberts - Trumpet
Jim Gold - Alto
Owen Dawson - Trombone
Aubin Vanns - Guitar
Will Barry - Piano
Will Harris - Double Bass
Jay Davis - Drums
