Thad Jones: A Centennial Celebration
Developing his orchestration aesthetic during his Basie years, for over three decades Thad Jones contributed greatly to the tonal and textural evolution of modern big band composing and arranging. The SJMO kicks off its season by honoring the great Thaddeus Joseph Jones with a centennial tribute. Selections may include "Her Royal Highness," "A Child Is Born," and "Little Pixie."
