Sampsons Glenn Miller-style orchestra was considered one of the best big bands on this side of the Atlantic in the years after the Second World War.Their 1947 season at the El Dorado in Leith effectively launched the Scottish jazz scene, with arrangements of classic Big Band numbers by Sampson and Edwin Holland. Murray, long time associate of Sampson, recreates the music from that amazing time.
