Dudley House Jazz Bands - December Concert!
Picture for poster after Jazz by Geoff Coe.
Friday, December 5th at 8:45 p.m.
Dudley House's Main Dining Room (Harvard Yard).
Refreshments will be served.
If you live in the Boston area, get ready for a hot Jazz night in Dudley House, even if it's cold outside!
Our Combo will play swinging arrangements in different styles, from jazz waltz to rhythm'n blues. Alan Lenarcic has lead the rehearsals with brio, and the tunes will be:
- James P. Johnson's 1921 Carolina Shout, arranged by Karim Al-Zand.
- PeeWee Ellis & Jaco Pastorius's The Chicken
- Wayne Shorter's Infant Eyes
- Chick Corea's Times Lie
- Donald Fagen & Walter Becker's My Old School
As during each concert since last Fall, new music will be created: this time, the big-band's lead trombonist Ethan Fenn composed a new piece for a cool ensemble of winds, bass and drums. Looking forward to this world première!
