Virtual Performance: Big Band Legacy – Evolution of the Jazz Orchestra
Big Bands ushered in the swing era in the early 1930s with Duke Ellington and continued its legacy with Count Basie, Mary Lou Williams, Stan Kenton, Buddy Rich, Maria Schneider, Gordon Goodwin, and more, each playing a significant role in the development, innovation and popularization of orchestral jazz. The rest is history! Join your Charleston Jazz Orchestra as we present a musical timeline of the evolution of the Jazz Orchestra with Big Band Legacy, in Charleston, North Charleston, and online.
