Carnegie Hall Citywide: Alphonso Horne and The Gotham Kings

February 22, 2019 8:00pm

Alphonso Horne honors the legacy and continues the rich traditions of such iconic trumpet masters as King Oliver and Louis Armstrong. Horne and the band have the sizzling chops to capture the classic sound of New Orleans jazz and the innovative vision to put their own contemporary stamp on the music. Horne has performed with such stars as Wynton Marsalis (who included him in a list of 16 young jazz musicians entitled “Wynton’s Picks: Who’s Got Next”), Dianne Reeves, Jane Monheit, and Rihanna.

Carnegie Hall Neighborhood Concert: The George Gee Swing Orchestra at Flushing Town Hall

ImageGenOctober 13, 2017 | 8 PM

“It don’t mean a thing if it ain’t got that swing,” goes the eternal lyric. The George Gee Swing Orchestra’s brand of big-band music delivers plenty of swing, rocking rhythms, and razor sharp musicianship to set pulses racing. Bandleader Gee honors the great swing tradition immortalized by Glenn Miller, Count Basie, and (of course) Duke Ellington, but puts his own stamp on the music. The band’s latest album is called Swing Makes You Happy—just hear them and you will smile.
