Sunday, July 21 – Huntington Jazz Week – Swingtime Big Band: ‘Name’ That Tune
Swingtime brings you a fun new program featuring classic tunes inspired by names of people and characters! Breaking out our Webster’s dictionary to include Proper Nouns, we extend our musical exploration to showcase songs with names of places and things. Plus, our 2019 Centennial celebrations include 100th Birthday tributes to vocalists Nat King Cole and Anita O’Day, and jazz legends George Shearing and Mercer Ellington! Leading the band is saxophonist and artistic director Steve Shaiman, featuring vocalists Bobbie Ruth & Zack Alexander.
