Swansea-born composer Huw Warren presents his
jazz suite ‘Do not go Gentle’ based on the poetry of Dylan Thomas.
Commissioned by Brecon Jazz Festival for the Dylan Thomas centenary
year, the work is the result of Warren’s lifelong interest in
Thomas’ poetry and reflects the inherent musicality of the words.
This performance forms part of a tour dedicated to the memory of
the late Stan Tracey, whose ‘Under Mild Wood’ suite of 1965 was
such a great inspiration to Warren and many other jazz
Huw Warren will be supported by the talented jazz musicians of
the Royal Welsh College who will perform an AmserJazzTime foyer
session before the concert and an AmserJazzTime Late session
following the concert.
Venue: Dora Stoutzker Hall
