The music will come from the libraries of Chuck Mangione, Duke Ellington, Les Hooper’s Grand Band, Frank Mantooth, Bob Mintzer’s Big Band, Maynard Ferguson Big Bop Nouveau, and a special number made famous by Glenn Miller in 1941. There will be solos by guitar, alto, tenor, trumpet, trombone, and drums.
