For our eleventh anniversary we’re pulling out all the stops: the VJC Big Band will perform with one of the great jazz vocalists of our time. Kansas City-born Kevin Mahogany is an experienced big band singer who recorded with Frank Mantooth’s big band in 1991 and later went on to release his own big band CD in 2005.
The New York Times’ response was: “Nature unleashes a gale-force voice!” Mahogany’s singing style has been compared to Joe Williams and Johnny Hartman, in fact, he portrayed Big Joe Turner in Robert Altman’s Kansas City.
Our new recording, Where Here Meets There will be released Nov. 19, 2013 (for sale at Orchestrotica.com and many other online retailers). This tour will feature the album’s music and the band’s new lineup as a quintet with new member Tev Stevig on oud, tanbur, and surprises!
