Ella, Louis, and All That Jazz
The Buffalo Philharmonic joins forces with two of today’s top jazz musicians for a tribute to the golden age of musical improv and free-form scatting. Instead of attempting to slip their feet into the oversized clown shoes of Ella Fitzgerald and Louis Armstrong, Byron Stripling and Marva Hicks put their own modern spin on the iconic tunes of the glory days. Stripling, the artistic director of the Columbus Jazz Orchestra, channels the charm and charisma of both Satchmo’s horn and voice, but sings with a swinging clarity. Gospel icon Hicks, on the other hand, tackles Fitzgerald’s canon with the skill earned while performing in The Lion King, releasing a self-titled album with the Billboard hit “Never Been In Love Before,” and starring as the female lead in a jazz-blues production of Porgy and Bess.
Buffalo Philharmonic Orchestra
Though playing 120 concerts a year is a dream for some musicians, it's a reality for members of the Buffalo Philharmonic Orchestra. The classical musicians perform concerts at their home base, Kleinhans Music Hall, as well as throughout the U.S. In doing so, they introduce listeners to music ranging from Tchaikovsky to Duke Ellington, a task they've been up to since the orchestra's founding in 1934. In addition to performing live, they've also released a large number of CDs including Holiday Classics and Built for Buffalo that are available for sale.
