There is nothing quite so unique to modern American music as the “Big Band.” Mansfield’s own “Big Band,” the Artistic Jazz Orchestra, led by Paul Martin, is set to return to the Renaissance Theatre to once again demonstrate what truly makes the magnificent sound of the “big band” so incredible! The sound of roaring trumpets, velvet trombones, smooth saxophones, driving percussion and bass, masterful piano, and heartfelt, emotional vocals—it’s enough to make the spirit jump for joy!
In addition to many staples from the American Songbook and your favorite big bands, the AJO will spotlight special arrangements from local writers, including the maestro himself, Paul Martin. Once again, you will be treated to the superb vocals of Kelly Knowlton, as only she can vocalize! Get your tickets now, bring a friend, and support Mansfield’s premier jazz ensemble, the Artistic Jazz Orchestra!
The ‘Art of the Big Band’ will feature the great music that built the AJO and that continues to inspire both the band and audiences alike – songs like “Here’s That Rainy Day,” “Spring Will Be a Little Late This Year,” “Stella by Starlight,” and so many more.
