'Days On Earth' is perhaps Lockheart’s most ambitious and personal work to date. Composed over the last three years and recorded recently at Mark Knofler’s famous studios the work features a jazz sextet and 30-piece orchestra. Tonight’s concert is a special reworking of the six-movement piece arranged for a star-studded ensemble. Many of Lockheart’s eclectic tastes and influences are here, from cutting edge improvising, rich orchestral textures with nods to Bacharach and Stravinsky and 70’s funk. The concert will also feature brand new music especially composed for the event.
