Jazz in Hollywood is the theme of the La Crosse Jazz Orchestra’s first of four Sunday Concerts! The band has prepared some terrific big band arrangements of great movies.

The concert is also a powerhouse performance for lead trumpeter, Brent Turney from UW- Stevens Point. He will reprise Maynard Ferguson’s performances of “Theme from Shaft” and “Gonna Fly Now” from Rocky. The great drum sequence from “Whiplash” on Duke Ellington’s “Caravan” will be further explored by Winona drummer Rich MacDonald. He will also guide the band though the Buddy Rich’s “West Side Story” in tribute to the beautifully reworked movie by Steven Spielberg. James Bond, Looney Tunes and Judy Garland are among the several others that get the full LJO big band treatment.
