Thursday, April 25, 7:30 pm at Piedmont Center for the Arts
The Rob Reich Swings Left sextet plays jazz rooted in the classic swing era of the late 1930s that’s perfect for dancing. Their repertoire includes classic arrangements of Benny Goodman, Duke Ellington, Count Basie, and Artie Shaw, as well as new arrangements and originals by Reich that combine a hot rhythm with a cool sensibility. The players will be Rob Reich, piano; Andrew Stephens, trumpet; Ben Goldberg, clarinet; Craig Ventresco, guitar; Ollie Dudek, bass, and Eric Garland, drums.
Jazz in the Neighborhood’s Emerging Artist will be George Rogers, sax.
