Beats & Pieces Big Band launch Ten with video and tour


Manchester's mighty Beats & Pieces Big Band continue their yearlong 10th anniversary celebrations with the release of their aptly-titled new album, Ten, out on 20 July on Efpi Records. Recorded live at the Royal Northern College of Music, ten years to the day of their first rehearsal, the album features three songs from each of their two previous albums, Big Ideas and All In. Also included are three new tunes plus the first ever track bandleader Ben Cottrell wrote for the band, entitled 'Loan', which first appeared on their long-deleted 2009 debut EP. 

The band continue their touring with live dates at: Bonington Theatre, Nottingham (11 Oct); Marsden Jazz Festival (13 Oct); Blue Arrow, Glasgow (18 Oct) and Town Hall, Middlesbrough (19 Oct).
