The 10-12 piece jazz ensemble plays arrangements of popular songs and original blues and jazz numbers from the 10-piece ‘territory’ bands of late 20s and early 30s America, such as Benny Moten, Charlie Johnson, Fess Williams and Duke Ellington. They also play material from the polite society dance bands such as Guy Lombardo, Bert Ambrose and Ben Bernie and Ewan is also providing original compositions and arrangements in his own unique style.
