To ring in the holiday season, Jazz Night in America spends the hour with the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra performing highlights from their holiday songbook. We cozy up with members of the orchestra about their arrangements and favorite holiday moments. Recorded between 2012 and 2014, the music features appearances by guest vocalists Cécile McLorin Salvant, Gregory Porter and René Marie.

The Ladybugs Do Disney

Monday, December 21, 2015 - 7:00pm

In an era where the jazz standard songbook is ever expanding into the 21st century, The Ladybugs look back at the Disney catalogue. The Ladybugs are a young, band rooted in the vocal harmony jazz tradition but draw on elements of hot swing, American folk music and blues. Jazz Night in America dives into how the group developed on the New York ‘hot' jazz scene and what new things can be done with the Disney songbook.

A Duo of Duos: Gershon/Neighbors & Kohlhase/Darrell

Mandorla's 2016 series kicks off in very high gear with night of duos featuring two of the area's finest saxophonists. Russ Gershon will team up with drummer/vibraphonist Phil Neighbors, and Charlie Kohlhase with bassist Aaron Darrell. Both work primarily in acclaimed larger ensembles - Charlie in his Explorer's Club and Russ in the Either/Orchestra, which celebrates 30 years this year (and of which Charlie is a member). It will be exciting to hear each of them in the intimate musical space of a duo.

$12 advance, $15 at the door
