About This Event
The London is proud to continue the jazz tradition of the Monday Night Big Band. On a night when most musicians are free of gigs, they gather in numbers to play some of the music they love most: everything from Ellington and Basie to Buddy Rich and Michael Buble. Dont miss this chance to enjoy the power and diversity of the top horn-heavy bands from Portland and beyond.Second Wind Jazz was formed with one basic premise: Nothings better than enjoying the saxes-and-brass sounds of Big Band arrangements except playing those great arrangements! Weve been keeping the Big Band sound alive in the Portland area since November 10, 1998. Glenn Millers classic charts, the swinging sounds of Duke Ellington and Count Basie, lush ballads, the brassy charts of Stan Kenton, a little bossa nova, the jump swing of Big Bad Voodoo Daddyif it makes us smile and say Oh yeah! well play it. Come spend an evening with uswhether you boogie the night away on the dance floor or just kick back and tap your feet, we think youll have a good time.-dc
