Yes, you read that right... the TIJO Holiday Jazz event on Tuesday, December 18 at the Watermark 920, has a holiday piece that almost REQUIRES a ukulele. And better yet, the ukulele is doing a duet with the bass trombone! Trumpet man Greg Wells admitted that he owns and can play ukulele, so he was drafted to double on uke for that song. Our low-note slush-pump guy, Vince Browand, will cover the bass bone part. Come and see this unusual phenomenon (don't worry, it is only on ONE piece) ;-) next Tuesday!!
Playing a mixture of classic jazz big band pieces from the Buddy Rich, Woody Herman, and other big band libraries, plus some VERY recent charts from Gordon Goodwin and others.
