Sinatra & Basie In Redd


Friday, August 10, 2018 8:00PM
Shedd Jaqua Concert Hall


Sinatra & Basie In Redd When we first asked Chuck Redd about the theme "masters and mentors", he responded with one word: Frank. Sinatra, he noted, has had a profound and lasting impact on jazz musicians in how they approach a song. Many have argued that he wasn't a jazz singer, but his elegantly nuanced deviations off the vocal line, his impeccable timing and phrasing impressed deeply. In this final evening of OFAM 2018, Chuck and company offer a predominantly instrumental study of the Sinatra style, with a focus on his work with Count Basie and punctuated with vocals by Siri Vik and Michael Stone.
