2017 CJO SEASON 9

 

The Charleston Jazz Orchestra (CJO) announces its ninth season!

The season begins February 18, 2017 with Singin’ Ellington: The Duke and his Vocalists. Duke Ellington is considered to be one of the greatest composers and jazz musicians of all time. During this concert, the CJO will celebrate “the Duke” and some of the famous vocalists who sang with his band such as Ella Fitzgerald, Tony Bennett, and Frank Sinatra.

March 18, 2017 marks a performance that will honor one of the most decorated artists of the twentieth century. Unforgettable: A Tribute to Nat King Cole will feature his younger brother Freddy Cole. Celebrating his 85th year, Freddy Cole has been recording and touring for over fifty years and boasts over thirty recordings as a bandleader. The CJO is thrilled to join Freddy in creating an intimate tribute with songs including Unforgettable, L-O-V-E and Mona Lisa.

The Charleston Jazz Orchestra’s third concert on April 15, 2017 will highlight the age of Motown. Motown: The Groove that Changed America will feature music by Smokey Robinson, Diana Ross, Marvin Gaye, The Temptations, Michael Jackson and the Jackson 5, and South Carolina’s own James Jamerson.

The Fall season will be launched on September 16 with the warm tones of jazz. Blue Note Records: The Iconic Jazz Label and Its Stars will provide a variety of jazz styles from hard bop to avant-garde to free jazz.  The label, Blue Note Records, has been home to nearly every major jazz artist of each era. Names like Joe Henderson, Wayne Shorter, Art Blakey, Thelonious Monk, Horace Silver, Herbie Hancock, Sonny Rollins and Eric Dolphy have all graced the albums of Blue Note Records. The CJO will perform favorites from Blue Note’s legendary catalog and relive the jazz milestones that influenced so many.

The October 21 concert will pay tribute to one of the most musically accomplished and critically acclaimed bands of the 20th century. Jazz Elements: The Music of Earth, Wind and Fire with guest vocalist Quiana Parler, will features such hits as September, Shining Star, and After the Love has Gone.

To close out the CJO’s 2017 season, Holiday Swing: A Charleston Jazz Tradition will take place on December 2nd. Maestro Charlton Singleton and the CJO will swing the audience into the holiday spirit with popular hits from  Season 9 plus big band arrangements of holiday favorites like Baby It’s Cold Outside, Christmas Song, All I Want for Christmas is You.

“We’re excited about this concert line-up because it celebrates the classic icons of jazz while also paying tribute to some of the most famous pop music bands of our time,” says Mary Beth Natarajan, Executive Director of Jazz Artists of Charleston (JAC).
