We are so pleased to welcome back to Birmingham, after what seems a very a long absence, Mike Westbrook in Orchestra mode -The Uncommon Orchestra.

A 20-strong ensemble a very big sound for this Winter, in the studio space of the Blue Orange. Mike Westbrook was in his early 20's when he first led a band and he has been doing it for the last55 years.

Like the great US bandleaders, he has continually gathered together powerful combinations of playing talent that have brought his often-ambitious compositions to vigorous life.

His biggest and most impressive achievements have been collaborations with lyricist and vocalist Kate Westbrook, usually highly stylised jazz oratorios, often with a political edge and always staged on a grand scale that defies the economic logic of jazz
