Saxophonist Tommy Smith and pianist Brian Kellock are Scotland’s international jazz ambassadors, having worked with jazz’s leading players and wowed audiences on both sides of the Atlantic. Recently acclaimed as “world class” by Jazz Journal, they are master musicians who spin classic songs into creative gold and as the musical director and featured soloist respectively of the Scottish National Jazz Orchestra’s enthusiastically received In the Spirit of Duke and Rhapsody in Blue Live albums, they bring a special musical relationship to the stage. Their concerts are intimate and spontaneous: music played with passion and tenderness and presented with humour and bonhomie.
Individually Smith and Kellock have outstanding musical pedigrees. Smith toured the world with jazz legend Gary Burton at the age of eighteen, going on to record for the definitive jazz label, Blue Note, work with myriad jazz greats including Chick Corea and Jaco Pastorius and found and direct the Scottish National Jazz Orchestra from 1995 to the present. His compositions and soloist work extend to the symphonic arena and in addition to his duo with Kellock he tours and records with Norwegian double bass master Arild Anderson’s trio, which features on the prestigious ECM Records and is widely regarded as one of the leading groups working in jazz today.
