One of the jazz world's most original and respected voices, Maria Schneider presents Data Lords alongside the highly acclaimed Oslo Jazz Ensemble.

Following a successful long term artistic relationship, the GRAMMY Award-winning bandleader and composer is joined by the 19-piece ensemble to bring the music of her remarkable, intense album Data Lords to life. 

Hailed as an evocative and daring voice in the musical world, Maria Schneider's work blurs the lines between genres and has seen her collaborate with Jazz at Lincoln Centre, The Saint Paul Chamber Orchestra and David Bowie. 

The Oslo Jazz Ensemble have a special ability to switch from blazing ensemble to intuitive and personal, making them the perfect fit for Schneider's sophisticated and highly detailed music. 

The end time for this show will be added nearer the time.
