This 10-piece All-Star ensemble lead by alto saxophonist Vincent Herring performs newly commissioned arrangements of classic jazz songs written by prominent artists from each decade of jazz history since 1917. The musical journey celebrating 100+ years of America’s native art form begins with the African drumming and work songs that led to the birth of the blues. The show moves through 1920’s Ragtime, to 1930’s Swing, to 1940’s Bebop, to 1950’s Cool. In the 1960’s jazz explodes with innovation: The Hard Bop of Miles Davis and Art Blakey, the Modal Jazz of Miles Davis and John Coltrane, Soul Jazz, the Bossa Nova craze, Latin Jazz, and the Free/Avant-Garde sounds of Ornette Coleman. The program concludes with 1970’s Fusion and the many Post-Bop iterations from the 1980’s to the present.
