Twist of the Wrist
- Artist: Midland Youth Jazz Orchestra
- Format: CD
- Release Date:1/1/2005
This is the 2005 release by this award winning big band from the West Midlands in the UK. Already the accolades are coming in supporting our belief that this is an accurate representation of the professional performing standard of this exciting group. The selection includes many of the arrangements you can hear in any performance by the orchestra. Over the years MYJO has been proud to have released many excellent musicians into the professional arena. Recently ex-MYJO musicians have taken important seats in the BBC Big Band, Don Lusher's Big Band, Ted Heath's Big Band and many more............. not too surprising as the M.D. John Ruddick, himself a core member of many of these groups, insists on impeccable reading skills and an ability to fit into any musical setting. In recent times we have been particularly delighted to remind people that world class musicians, like Peter Cater, Mark Nightingale and Andy Wood are now revered internationally.
