Album Description

Tommy Smith’s jazz version of Peter and the Wolf remains true to Prokofiev’s premise that particular instruments are allocated to each character and the wonderful melodies are lovingly preserved whilst actor Tam Dean Burn will narrate new text specially adapted by Liz Lochhead.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
