Guildhall Jazz Orchestra

The Music of Bill Russo

Two Guildhall School jazz trombone players in performance

A major figure in the third-stream movement, seeking to find common ground between jazz and classical music, Russo worked in London from 1962 to 1965 while employed at the BBC, founding the London Jazz Orchestra and conducting the Morley Jazz Orchestra while in residence.

Scott Stroman directs Guildhall Jazz Orchestra and Richard Pywell directs Morley College Jazz Orchestra in a performance, which features Russo's arrangements for the Stan Kenton band as well as compositions made during his time in the UK.
