Kendrick Oliver & New Life Jazz Orchestra @ Shalin Liu SAT 8 FEB benefit for NMYO
Wow, these guys can swing! Here’s a great way to help support student musicians and have fun doing it. From their concert page:
Award-winning conductor Kendrick Oliver and his youthful, vibrant and energetic 15+ piece orchestra (including a vocalist) will light up the stage for a night of infectious sound. New Life Jazz Orchestra has been selling out concert halls and turning heads throughout the jazz scene since its inception in 1995 while Oliver was a student at Berklee College of Music. Respected throughout the jazz community, New Life Jazz Orchestra has appeared at a host of high profile events including the Boston Beantown Jazz Festival, Atlanta Jazz Festival, Tanglewood Jazz Festival, and opened JVC’s prestigious Newport Jazz Festival.
This evening will be nothing less than a swing, sing, stomp, and shout experience!
