Under the direction of Syd Potter, the Olympia Jazz Tentette returns to the Royal. The band has been working up an almost entirely new repertoire, including some new grooves - some quite danceable - and some new contemporary compositions by composers such as John Scofield, Kenny Dorham, and Thelonious Monk. Join them for an evening of little Big Band music.
