"James Langton is internationally renowned as a re-creator of big band swing. For seven years he led The Pasadena Roof Orchestra as vocalist, travelling all over the world to perform. James created the Solid Senders Orchestra as part of his Master’s Degree studies on the Swing Era, but it quickly took on a life of its own, becoming established as the favorite band of all those who love to listen or dance to the authentic sounds of the swing era.
In 2002, James moved to New York City where he continues to perform with an American version of the band, James Langton’s New York All-Star Big Band, which recently played for the re-opening of the beautiful Rainbow Room atop Rockefeller Center.
James is thrilled to call together the original members of The Solid Senders, the cream of the big band and jazz scene, for tonight’s appearance at Ronnie Scott’s. The roof will definitely be raised!"
