“Luscious renditions of jazz standards from greats including Nat King Cole, Billie Holiday and Ella Fitzgerald.” Ammar Kalia, The Guardian

One of the UK’s top swing orchestras is embarking on a UK tour this spring. The critically acclaimed 30-piece Down for the Count Orchestra, conducted by Mike Paul-Smith, has recently been making waves on the UK jazz scene with their warm, engaging and energetic performances.

One of the few UK swing ensembles to perform with a string section, Down for the Count’s show features recreations of Capitol Studios recordings from Frank Sinatra, Nat ‘King’ Cole and Ella Fitzgerald, alongside rarely heard British dance band music written by the grandfather of orchestra member Rose Hinton. Audiences will also be treated to transcriptions from the Charlie Parker with Strings albums and many more jazz and swing classics.
