In reviewing Maurice Hines’ October 2019 season opener with the Columbus Jazz Orchestra at the Southern Theatre, Columbus Dispatch music reviewer, Peter Tonguette, called Maurice Hines “marvelous beyond words.”
The legendary performer brings his special brand of razzle dazzle to the JazZoo stage with songs of Nat King Cole, Frank Sinatra and many others of the Great American Songbook. And through stories, anecdotes and song lyrics, audiences will be introduced to the many other legendary performers with whom he has shared stages around the world – in nightclubs, on Broadway and Las Vegas, including Ella Fitzgerald, Judy Garland, Count Basie and his brother, Gregory Hines. “If only all season-openers began with as much zip and zest.” – Columbus Dispatch
Opening Act: The Columbus Youth Jazz Alumni Band | 6:45 p.m.
