The Appel Room

The Fabulous Dorsey Brothers

Saxophone and clarinet virtuosos Peter and Will Anderson showcase the music and history of another brotherly pair: Tommy and Jimmy Dorsey. The Dorseys were celebrated bandleaders who launched the careers of talents like Frank Sinatra and worked with legends like Buddy Rich, Sy Oliver, and Bing Crosby on chart-toppers including “Sunny Side of the Street” and  “I’m Getting Sentimental Over You.” The Andersons’ supremely hot band features Wycliffe Gordon, Brianna Thomas, Bruce Harris, Jeb Patton, Clovis Nicolas, and Aaron Kimmel. Grammy Award-winning musician and scholar Loren Schoenberg has penned an original script for this show.

Steve Miller, Jimmie Vaughan & Charlie Musselwhite: The Blues Triangle

Memphis, Texas, and Chicago

Renowned blues-rock guitarist, singer/songwriter, and 2016 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee Steve Miller returns to Rose Theater for a journey through the Blues Triangle. Having learned his first chords at age five from his godfather Les Paul, how to play lead guitar from T-Bone Walker at age nine, and then working with the best bluesmen in Chicago – Muddy Waters, Howlin' Wolf, Buddy Guy, James Cotton, and Paul Butterfield – Miller has a serious affinity for the blues. In this program, he will explore music from three essential blues hubs: Memphis, Texas, and Chicago.

With fresh arrangements, playful improvisation, and entertaining storytelling, they bring out the magic in such classics as Count Basie’s “Jingle Bells,” “Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas,” and Billie Holiday’s “I’ve Got my Love to Keep me Warm.” Jazz royalty Catherine Russell joins as special guest vocalist for the second year, continuing a spirited partnership that has spread Yuletide cheer in dozens of cities across the country. This year she’ll be joined by another JALC favorite, fellow vocalist Kenny Washington.
