Slipped Disc
Small Group Swing
Wed, Jul 31, 8:00 - 10:00 pm
Jaqua Concert Hall, The Shedd Institute
Chuck Redd and his Festival small group will highlight the many interesting and historically significant small ensembles that featured stars of the Swing Era. They will perform compositions that are both fiery and intimate, showcasing instrumental soloists and vocalists.
Slipped Disc is one of 6 OFAM 2019 concerts presented twice:
    Matinee: Sat, July 27 - 1:00 pm
    Evening: Wed, July 31 -8:00 pm
These small band settings are cohesive musical offerings that allow for the soloists and singers to shine with a bit more freedom than in big band settings. We will feature selections by Benny Goodman, John Kirby, Red Norvo, Count Basie, Duke Ellington, Django Reinhardt, Nat Cole and more.
