Tommy Smith and the Scottish National Jazz Orchestra present Electric Contact: A Jazz Tribute to Tom McGrath featuring Tam Dean Burn

Jazz was a huge influence on Tom McGrath’s life and work. Aside from his own skills as a pianist, he was also responsible for bringing several jazz legends to Scotland in the 1970s, including Miles Davis and Duke Ellington.

EIFF 2017 will see Edinburgh-born jazz saxophonist Tommy Smith lead the Scottish National Jazz Orchestra in a musical tribute to McGrath, featuring the music of Davis, Ellington and other jazz greats.

Their performance will be complimented by readings of McGrath’s poetry by acclaimed Scottish actor Tam Dean Burn. [U]
