Sweet Thunder Jazz Orchestra
Golden Beach

Sweet Thunder is a 13-piece jazz orchestra based on the Gold Coast. The band plays a mix of big band jazz arranged specifically for the line-up of three trumpets, three trombones, four saxes plus piano, bass and drums. While the band draws heavily on the Duke Ellington/Billy Strayhorn legacy they also play works by Benny Carter, Gerry Mulligan, Count Basie, Quincy Jones, John Clayton and others. The band's name comes from a classic Ellington/Strayhorn album called 'Such Sweet Thunder' - the recording of their so-called Shakespearean Suite.
