Accessibility info: Entry on street level, no steps and no ramps into the seating area, wheelchairs would have to call first because of narrow aisles, but I bet they would accommodate you; many were there with canes, albeit pretty ones, and were fine. However, the coat room is down a flight of steps and I am not sure if the bathroom may be there too. Check if that is a concern. I found them helpful when I called about my companion, who cannot do stairs.

Description

Whether Russell Garcia was composing film scores In Hollywood (The Time Machine, Atlantis the Lost Continent, Charlie Chaplin’s Limelight etc.), arranging for Ella Fitzgerald, Louis Armstrong, Anita O’Day, Julie London, Blossom Dearie, Mel Torme, or Frances Faye (to name just a few) or composing ground-breaking modern symphonic tazz for Stan Kenton in the 50’s, it is undisputed that Garcia’s musical contributions created the template by which so much of our modern movie music, big band and pop-jazz have sprung. Garcia literally wrote the book on arranging that musicians around the world have relied on since the 40’s, and he continues to write, teach and perform today at the tender age of 92.

MAC Award wining singer Shaynee Rainbolt has gone into the studio with this legendary composer/arranger to create the first-ever vocal album of Russ Garcia originals. In concert, Shaynee brings us Russ Garcia’s music – originals as well as some of your favorite standards, all arranged by Garcia for Shaynee and her Four Trombone Band,
