John Burgess plays Eddie Condons
West Princes Street Gardens Spiegeltent
West Princes Street Gardens, Edinburgh
Burgess is the leading player in the renaissance of swinging jazz in Scotland. A tenor saxophone player with a beautiful sound; and a clarinetist who can purr and excite in equal measure. Today, we’re introduced to an all star band, featuring New York musicians who play in the closest style to the easygoing informal swinging jazz made famous at Condon’s Manhattan club, we’re transported to an era in which swing was still king, and mainstream jazz was born.
