An evening (or afternoon) with the Big Band is a night of daring improvisation and a celebration of community: it’s what makes live music irreplaceable.First half of this show will feature some new compositions and some old music from the residency at the Vortex.

Second half will be “The Queens Suite” including “The Single Petal of a Rose”and some other specially selected Ellington numbers.
