TRIBUTE TO ELLA, JOE AND BASIE with Janis Siegel, Kevin Mahogany and the Count Basie OrchestraWednesday, September 25, 8 PM


Count Basie’s music, characterized by a blues-steeped jumping beat and contrapuntal piano accents, was a showcase for top-singers. "This evening, we honor two great singers whose performances with the Count reached legendary proportions." Joe Williams, the blues legend will be presented by DownBeat poll winner Kevin Mahogany. Janis Siegel, as a member of the eight-time Grammy winning group—Manhattan Transfer, will pay homage to the great jazz vocalist Ella Fitzgerald.
