Eddie Daniels, Harlem String Quartet and Ted Nash

The Appel Room • 7:00PM, 9:30PM

Fri, Jun 1 • Sat, Jun 2

Eddie Daniels is the preeminent jazz and classical clarinet virtuoso, described by Benny Goodman as his "successor" and by Leonard Bernstein as a "thoroughly well-bred demon" who "combines elegance with virtuosity." He'll be playing alongside composer, fellow woodwind master, and two-time 2017 Grammy Award winner Ted Nash of the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra. Joining this formidable pair is a swinging jazz rhythm section and the Harlem Quartet. The string group will add extra color to Nash’s brand new composition and to his arrangements of pieces by Vivaldi, Bach, and Ravel.


The Swing Collective

The Appel Room • 7:00PM, 9:30PM

Sat, Mar 24

The Swing Collective is a new quintet of enormously talented young musicians representing five countries of origin: Chilean tenor saxophonist and Thelonious Monk Competition winner Melissa Aldana, Trinidadian trumpeter Etienne Charles, Cuban pianist Elio Villafranca, Japanese bassist Yasushi Nakamura, and Ulysses Owens, Jr. of Jacksonville, Florida. To witness these artists on a single stage is an exciting prospect, but tonight’s performance will be particularly special as they each debut new works composed specifically for this occasion.
