Ben Cottrell
Beats & Pieces Big Band


Comprising many of Manchester's best musicians Beats and Pieces are one of the most exciting ensembles to emerge from the north of England. Under the direction of composer and conductor Ben Cottrell, their music is an expression of the varied musical backgrounds and activities of the band’s members and Cottrell’s inspired writing. Known for their explosive energy and heavyweight sound, they have reinvented big band music for a new generation, drawing on sources as diverse as The Beatles, Radiohead, Loose Tubes and Björk. As Ben Cottrell says “Beats & Pieces is not your average big band, rather a band that’s big”.
