Mark Chandler directs the Leeds College of Music Contemporary Jazz Orchestra, alongside featured soloist Iain Ballamy in a full programme of Ballamy's music. The music for this event is specially arranged by Malcolm Edmonstone, Head of Jazz at Guildhall School of Music & Drama. 
 
ECM recording artist Iain Ballamy is an internationally recognised saxophonist and composer who has been variously described as urbane, original, freethinking and uncompromising.
 
Listed in the BBC’s publication ‘100 Jazz Greats’ between Count Basie and Chet Baker, Ballamy’s work is contemporary with both strong jazz and classical references and yet un-encumbered by formality and tradition.
 
Over three decades spent transcending musical genres and stereotypes and by forging strong and ongoing relationships with musicians around the globe, Ballamy has worked with many cutting-edge figures of today’s contemporary Jazz scene.
 
Ballamy was presented with the BBC Jazz Award for Innovation in 2001.
