Win Promo Copies Of ‘Jazz Planets’ Album


September marks the 100th anniversary of Holst’s classic ‘The Planets’, and almost to day of the centenary, Peter Long and his Echoes of Ellington Jazz Orchestra, release a jazz re-working of the famous suite with an Ellington-sque version that’s out of this world – ‘Jazz Planets’ is released on 28 September.

In 1914, a young man called, Edward Ellington, wrote a simple piano piece entitled ‘Soda Fountain Rag’ and he went on to become widely recognised as the foremost American composer of any genre. In the same year, 1914, the English composer, Gustav Holst, began writing what was set to become one of the world’s most famous suites of classical music, ‘The Planets’.

Now, exactly 100 years since that first premiere, Peter Long and his Echoes of Ellington Jazz Orchestra bring the work of those two great musical legends together in a glorious fusion of cosmic Ellington-esque jazz, with the release of ‘Jazz Planets’.
