Wells Cathedral School
Swing Machine Jazz Orchestra with PeeWee Ellis
“PeeWee makes funk sound jazzy and jazz sound funky. Somehow he synthesises the two into one great music.” – Peter Madsen
We welcome the great PeeWee Ellis to Cedars Hall with our resident Swing Machine Jazz Orchestra. It’s not often that we can claim to be hosting a genuine musical legend, but PeeWee is the real thing. Now 77, the American saxophonist and composer learnt his craft with Sonny Rollins, played in James Brown’s band in the ‘60s co-writing hits like Cold Sweat and Say it Loud – I’m Black and I’m Proud, and later worked closely with Van Morrison.
Early booking recommended.
