“Feeling Good” – Doncaster Youth Jazz Orchestra’s new vocal EP out now!

IMG_3858

Our new EP, “Feeling Good” launches tomorrow night at our joint concert “Swing on a Summer’s Evening”. Following on from Doncaster Youth Jazz Association’s successful exchange tour in Germany in 2015 many people suggested we record our current young musicians alongside our talented vocallists, Max and Ruth. Perhaps the fact that they were only 17 and 15 when this EP was put together should make the impact of listening to this EP more memorable. It seems fitting that this EP launches when it does and will be out on sale at our CAST performance on Friday 1st July (Swing on a Summers Evening) with our Herten friends from the Erich Feeling GoodKlausener Schule (EKS).  After all it was through this exchange relationship and on our 2015 trip that we were inspired to put this together. Having to date, mostly recorded instrumental pieces this EP is a nod to posterity as it not only celebrates the enormous talent of our young musicians but commemorates the 2015 relaunch of the Doncaster Youth Jazz Orchestra (DYJO) under the very capable hands of Dennis Rollins (DYJA Alum) our new Associate Director. We hope you enjoy listening. John Ellis MBE
