What better way to launch the 2011-2012 Seattle Repertory Jazz Orchestra main stage concert series than with the music of “Ol’ Blue Eyes” himself, Frank Sinatra.
- Saturday, Oct. 29th (7:30 pm) – Nordstrom Recital Hall
- Sunday, Nov. 6th (3 pm) – Kirkland Performance Center
In a celebration of Sinatra’s many recordings with large ensembles, the SRJO presents big band jazz of Count Basie, Quincy Jones, and Nelson Riddle, featuring guest vocalists Danny Quintero and James Caddell singing their favorites in a tribute to “Ol’ Blue Eyes.”
Selections include Come Fly with Me, I’ve Got You Under My Skin, Don’t Worry About Me, Luck Be a Lady Tonight and The Best Is Yet to Come, plus other great pieces recorded for the classic 1966 collaboration of Sinatra with Quincy Jones and the Count Basie band, Sinatra at the Sands.
James Caddell is a longtime favorite with SRJO fans and is heard on recordings with Don Lanphere and Clarence Acox. While Danny Quintero is new on the scene specializing in music of Sinatra, he is hailed by all as a singer with talent far beyond his years.
Tickets are selling fast, and opening night is looking like it will sell out. Act fast to make sure you enjoy one of this year’s hottest shows!
This concert is part of the exciting line up presented by the 2011 Earshot Jazz Festival.
