One of my favourite quotes is not from Aristotle, Ghandi or Einstein, as you might think, it is from the legendary American blues singer BB King.
“The beautiful thing about learning is that no one can take it away from you”
We like to think this is all part of the nature of the Invicta Jazz Orchestra – whether you are a performer or a listener.
Our band is made up of people of a range of ages, of different experiences and backgrounds but we all have one thing in common – we’re all here to learn no matter how much we think we know. We learn new pieces, we learn new styles, we learn new skills and we also learn not to be too afraid when the MD points at us for a solo! We also like to think our audience learn a little bit too, particularly about the music we play and the fun that is had at our gigs.
In the sentiment of BB King, learning is a legacy, so listen to our tracks, come along to our gigs and listen to us live and we hope you like what we’ve learnt!
