Sweet Thunder - Jazz Aristocrats
Sweet Thunder is a 13-piece jazz orchestra based on the Gold Coast who will be presenting "Jazz Aristocrats" on Sunday 21 July 2024. The band plays a mix of big band jazz arranged specifically for the lineup of three trumpets, three trombones, four saxes plus piano, bass and drums. While the band draws heavily on the Duke Ellington/Billy Strayhorn legacy they also play works by Benny Carter, Gerry Mulligan, Count Basie, Quincy Jones, John Clayton and others.

Josh Sinclair, Col Jones (trumpet)
Anthony Simmonds, Alistair McMillan (trombone and trumpet)
