September 28 – 29, 2012
Friday – Saturday 8:00 p.m.
Help kick off our 40th anniversary season with a special two-night performance with legendary Tonight Show bandleader and Grammy Award-winner Doc Severinsen!
Who better to help celebrate 40 years of America’s oldest not-for-profit jazz organization than The Tonight Show high-note virtuoso and fashion fiend Doc Severinsen? Regarded as one of the most technically proficient trumpeters, Doc can blow the roof off with a solo and command a stage like no other.
“40 Years of Jazz Arts Group” will also feature one of our most requested themes – a special tribute to controversial jazz maven Stan Kenton. Known for his loud, brassy, progressive jazz, Kenton’s music emphasizes a moving combination of emotion, power, and harmony.
