The Clapham Grand
Social London Orchestra performed Skip Martin’s “Scheherajazz” at the Clapham Grand on Sunday 6th August. This rarely-performed piece, originally put together with the 101 Strings Orchestra and Skip Martin’s Big Band on two separate recording dates, combines the original ballet music of Rimsky-Korsakov’s “Scheherazade” with big band interludes written by Martin, one of the foremost arrangers for swing bands and Hollywood films in the 30s, 40s and 50s.

The members of Social London Orchestra were joined by some of London’s top jazz musicians in what was the first recorded performance of this piece on British soil. This was the final event of the 2023 Battersea Jazz Festival. The combination of an exciting work, with such a talented group of players, at one of London’s most historic entertainment venues, made for an unforgettable concert.
