Join trumpeter Dan Miller and saxophonist Lew Del Gatto as they celebrate the genius and music of George Gershwin. The music that Gershwin composed for the Broadway Stage and the Hollywood Screen became an integral part of the Great American Songbook, loved by musicians, singers and audiences alike. The program will include such favorites as Embraceable You, Oh Lady Be Good, I Got Rhythm, Summertime, S’Wonderful, Our Love Is Here To Stay, Love Walked In, Strike Up The Band, Soon, The Man I Love, But Not For Me and They Can’t Take That Away from Me.
Dan Miller built his reputation touring and recording with Harry Connick Jr., Wynton Marsalis, Maynard Ferguson, Woody Herman and Tom Jones.
Lew Del Gatto was a member of the Saturday Night Live Band from 1975-2006 and toured and recorded with Frank Sinatra, Aretha Franklin, The Rolling Stones and Buddy Rich.
For this concert, they bring together a tremendous group of musicians for an evening of hard swinging, acoustic jazz music including pianist Joe Delaney, bassist Don Mopsick and drummer-vocalist Patricia Dean.
