The Mike Westbrook Big Band offered a FUNTASTIC weekend of Duke Ellington inspired music, various big band classics and Westbrook originals - i.e. a complete rendition of 'On Duke's Birthday', an absolute masterpiece - in the Devon countryside on April 28-29, 2012. Among the first evening's highlights was 'Manje', by Chris McGregor, arranged by Mike Westbrook for The Dedication Orchestra in the early 90s. Soloists: Dave Holdsworth (trumpet), Lou Gare (tenor saxophone).

(update): this video is also available at http://www.youtube.com/user/Westbrook... with better sound mix added by Bob Cronin. Thank you Bob!
