The Tom Sharp Jazz Orchestra began life as a rehearsal big band in Leeds, but has swiftly become one of West Yorkshire's most in-demand jazz ensembles.

With Tom Sharp as musical director, the band plays music from all across the big band repertoire of the twentieth century, focusing on the big swingers of the 50s, as well as showcasing arrangements from members of the orchestra.
