The Cutting Room Presents

The Cutting Room Presents:
The Monday Night Band: All-star Alumni of the Gil Evans Orchestra
Fri, November 21, 2014
Doors: 6:30 pm / Show: 7:30 pm
The Cutting Room, New York, NY

All-star alumni of the Gil Evans Orchestra reunite to celebrate the band's "Monday Night At Sweet Basil" era. Between tours, Gil's freewheeling, hi-energy band made it's home base in Greenwich Village during the '70s - perhaps it's "golden age" - during which the band won Grammys for "The Music Of Jimi Hendrix" and "Live At Sweet Basil", recorded on one of those Mondays. This lineup of dynamic NYC players were there, all of them internationally-known sidemen and band leaders. The credo is the same as Gil's was 30 years ago: Let's see where the music can go. And yes, they'll be playing Hendrix tonight - and recording the show.

Jo_Stafford,_ca._July_1946_(William_P._Gottlieb_08111)
There was a time in the late-1940s and early '50s when Jo Stafford was America's most popular female singer, eventually matched only by Ella Fitzgerald. The maternal warmth of Stafford's voice, her soulful tones and her relaxed sense of swing made her a favorite of white and black audiences. With the advent of TV in the 1950s, Stafford was given a live show in 1954 and her grace and take-charge charm easily won over audiences.

After listening yesterday to my favorite Stafford album, Swingin' Down Broadway (1958), I decided to nose around at YouTube to share the joy with you. [Photo by William P. Gottlieb]
