Jaga Jazzist - 'Live With Britten Sinfonia' (2013)

Jaga Jazzist had long wanted to work with an orchestra, and when the British radio DJ Fiona Talkington introduced them to the Britten Sinfonia, they leapt at the chance to collaborate.

The music is full of exuberance and passion, each player becoming an equal part of a startlingly purposeful hive-mind. More on, facebook and Ninja Tune.
