Threads Orchestra

Threads Orchestra... stitching a musical spell from wing of bat and eye of newt... well, not quite, but a bit of alchemy plays its part in this intriguing mix, gaining Threads’ reputation as one of the most interesting bands to emerge in the UK in recent years. Boil the cauldron and splatter in the jazz, classical, rock, world, Americana, and tango styles, summon the versatility to play anything from self-penned intriguing compositions to innovative arrangements of Zappa, Zorn, Piazzolla and Messiaen; stir and cast the spell without taking it too seriously. This is an utterly unique experience for a 21st century audience - tuneful , melodic chemistry transforming cinematic landscape into snarling groove in the blink of an eye

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
