Mike Gibbs at Pizza

February 2011 - Mike Gibbs makes a rare return from his current base in Malaga to guest with the new Pizza Express Jazz Orchestra led by Hans Koller at the Pizza Express, Dean St, London on 13 February.

Hans Koller told JJ that since he has been playing in Mike's band, Mike has "gone back (or forward!) to do arrangements of standards and jazz compositions, which has been really amazing."

The line-up at Pizza is: Mike Gibbs (composer, conductor); Finn Peters, Julian Siegel, Robin Fincker (reeds), Percy Pursglove, Robbie Robson, Chris Batchelor (t); Jim Rattigan (frh); Jeremy Price, Sarah Williams (tb); Hans Koller (p); Michael Janisch (b) and Jeff Williams (d).
