Swingin' & Wailin'/ Swing Central Finale

One of the most exciting original productions of the festival, this evening of swing begins with the top three Swing Central Jazz high school jazz bands participating in a final competition round. The second half of the performance is dedicated to the art of improvisation within the swing idiom. Virtuosic improvisers such as Marcus Roberts, Wycliffe Gordon, and Terell Stafford take the bandstand in a program highlighting the role of the solo in jazz.
“…the big-name clinicians who have mentored the high school band members during the weeklong competition take the stage for the second half of the concert, in a variety of configurations, and serenade their students… a worthwhile and heartwarming event.” –JazzTimes
