Sanford Jazz Ensemble: 50 Years of Instrumental Hits
This special concert brings you five decades of great instrument hits, including the Big Band era with huge instrumental favorites. By the 50s, when singers ruled the air waves, an instrumental would break through every now and then. With recordings like Perez Prado’s “Cherry Pink and Apple Blossom White,” Herb Alpert’s “Rise,” Herbie Hancock’s “Chameleon,” and the Average White Band’s “Pick Up the Pieces,” this concert features the hits you love. Soulful singer Ron Stark will thrill us with a medley of Barry White (known for his bass voice and romantic image) songs and more.
