WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
In this concert, Paul Cosentino and the Boilermaker Jazz Band will bring the energy and delicate swing of the small bands to you, performing some of their best-known material. You'll also hear some of your favorite Goodman Big Band melodies, done small-band style.
Benny Goodman was also fortunate enough to work with some of the finest female vocalists of the era including Peggy Lee, Martha Tilton, Ella Fitzgerald, and the Helens — Ward and Forrest. These ladies always brought a touch of class and grace to the proceedings along with the requisite swing factor! Jennifer McNulty brings you selections by Benny's Girls including "Why Don't You Do Right?," "Goody Goody," "My Heart Belongs to Daddy," and "Taking a Chance on Love."
