“When Wes Was” arranged by David O’Rourke

In a previous post the piece “When Wes Was” was mentioned in a quote from a great review by Gráinne Farren in the Sunday Independent of a Dublin City Jazz Orchestra in April 2011. An audience member made this video of this very piece arranged by David O’Rourke for fellow guitarist Hugh Buckley and the orchestra.  Enjoy and find out how to book tickets to one of his four gigs in Ballina, Tallaght, Waterford or Bray below.
