Singin’ and Swingin’
All That’s Jazz!
All That’s Jazz! brings a bit of everything jazz to the 100th anniversary celebration of Boise Music Week.
It gets started with the tight harmonies of the popular barbershop quartet from The Boise Chordsmen, and then slides right into Dixieland with Peggy Purdy on the upright piano. The Big Band era will be well-represented by Idaho’s own Kings of Swing, who will be joined by the smooth vocals of the Modernaires. The mood of the mid-century will be captured by the Treasure Valley’s own Essential Jazz vocal group.
Two of the biggest names in Idaho jazz are Chuck Smith and Sandon Mayhew and they’ll be joined by a few close friends to take music through bop, cool school and fusion, highlighting the modern era of jazz. It all wraps up with the Saints – the kind that go marching in, with a few surprise guests at the head of the pack.
We are honored to, once again, have Jim Duthie of Channel 7’s News Team returning as our MC. He brings his love of music and delightful wit and humor to guide us through the evening.
Prepare to be thoroughly entertained as you experience this year’s ALL THAT’S JAZZ!
