TAKE 5: West Coast Cool Jazz

Dave Brubeck, Chet Baker, Paul Desmond, and Gerry Mulligan helped create the popular ‘cool jazz’ style that hailed from the West Coast. Lyrical, mellow, and always swinging, it helped define the musical soundscape of the 1950s. The Charleston Jazz Orchestra takes on some of the great songs and arrangements from that era, while exploring new versions of some of its classics. Put the top down on the convertible and take a ride along the Pacific Coast Highway September 14 at Charleston Music Hall.
