Smooth Classics with Margherita Taylor 10pm - 1am
Blue in Green is a student run jazz ensemble led by trumpeter Tim Wearden. They caught up with Classic FM's Tim Lihoreau ahead of their performance at the 2012 Music for Youth Schools Prom.
The group came together through Lincolnshire Music Service, meeting as members of Boston Youth Jazz Orchestra. Their repertoire consists of a mixture of jazz, fusion, funk and soul standards as well as several original compositions. They are in great demand for performances in their local area.
Blue in Green’s members represent Boston Grammar School, Boston High School, Boston Haven High Academy and Horncastle Grammar School.
Foggy Nights is an original composition, written specifically for Blue in Green. It is mostly a swing tune, but journeys through different grooves and feels, leaving plenty of space for members of the group to showcase their own personal way of improvising. In contrast Rain Dance/Wanna Fly by Jeff Lorber is a jazz fusion vocal feature that exhibits the band’s arranging skills.
Leader: Tim Wearden
Age range of performers: 15-18
