*RNZAF Jazz Orchestra presents: The Big Band Greats A Short History of Big Band Jazz*, preceded by *Young Musicians Programme Group led by Rodger Fox*

Wellington Jazz Club's July gig on Sunday 17 July @ Meow Event Venue will feature the RNZAF Jazz Orchestra presenting The Big Band Greats, a short history of big band jazz over the last 80 odd years. You will hear the music of Glenn Miller, Duke Ellington, Count Basie, Stan Kenton, Thad Jones, and Mel Lewis. Presenting as a standard Big Band line-up, it's currently boasting a 'Whos Who' of the Wellington jazz scene. This is a 'must hear' gig. From 5pm to 7pm.

Come early to hear *Rodger Fox lead a group from the Young Musicians Programme* of Victoria University. The YMP Programme gives young players individual and ensemble playing tuition, and opportunities to perform to audiences. Wellington Jazz Club is listed as a venue for 'additional concerts', so come along early to enjoy and encourage Rodger's YMP Group, from 4pm to 4.50pm.

Meals and drinks may be purchased during the gig.
