WYJO launch CD for fund European tour
The well-known Worcestershire Youth Jazz Orchestra (WYJO), loved by the many that enjoy the Jazz big band sound, has launched their first commercial CD entitled The Horn Ultimatum.
Professionally recorded and produced, the CD suits all and includes swing, Latin, ballad and funk, and includes five popular big band vocals.
WYJO’s musical director Ian Hattersley commenting on the CD’s success: “It’s been a personal labour of love producing the CD. Sourcing musical material and the many studio recordings needed to get just the right mix and WYJO sound has been amazing. On behalf of WYJO I would personally like to thank everyone who has helped make this CD possible.”
All profits from the CD’s sale will go to fund WYJO's proposed South of France tour next year. Hitting the right note with many, The Horn Ultimatum has already featured on local radio, with sales proving very popular amongst jazz lovers across the region.
Ranked one of the finest jazz groups in the county, WYJO continues to build a loyal following amongst jazz music lovers. Said Mr Hattersley: “The orchestra loves to do what they do, and they have totally enjoyed creating a CD which encapsulates their individual style and personality.”
