The Queens Jazz Orchestra Ensemble will be performed and streamed LIVE from Flushing Town Hall's Theater.
This concert will present the core rhythm section of the larger Queens Jazz Orchestra in a special program honoring NEA Jazz Master Jimmy Heath who passed away in January 19, 2020 at the age of 93. Jimmy Heath passed the baton to his protégé, Antonio Hart to conduct and lead the orchestra in his aftermath.
The ensemble is comprised of six amazing musicians: Freddie Hendrix on trumpet, Steve Davis on trombone, Antonio Hart on saxophone, Jeb Patton on piano, David Wong on bass, and Vince Ector on drums. They will perform some music composed by Jimmy Heath as well as jazz standard arrangements.
