Morning Melodies: UCT Big Band

The UCT Big Band is a 17-piece group in the tradition of Count Basie, Duke Ellington and the great bands of the Swing Era. The band plays a wide variety of big band jazz and popular material from classic swing to the most contemporary ensemble music of today, with Latin and indigenous South African music also featuring strongly. The players are all students in the jazz programme at the SA College of Music, headed by Dr Mike Campbell who directs the band and frequently writes arrangements and compositions for their repertoire. The band has performed with many of the country’s leading jazz artists over the years, and has a reputation for consistently putting out a high professional standard.
