Bristol in Poreč -@bujobristol and @BrisHornstars at the Valamar Jazz Festival

Two student ensembles from Bristol, both part of the University’s Big Band Society, have been touring in Croatia, and finished their travels tonight in Poreč, playing early evening sets in the town’s main square, Trg Slobode (Freedom Square) as part of the Valamar Jazz Festival’s free 2013 ‘Jazz Guerilla’ programme.

I missed the Bristol Horn Stars  set, but did catch just the very beginning of the Bristol University Jazz Orchestra’s  set. I noted that this band had a ginger-haired music director… and that their set   which included the 1950 Milton DeLugg and Willie Stein song Orange Colored Sky…and pondered whether these two facts might be in some way connected. Definitely food for thought there…..
