Jazz on the Tracks: The Train in Classic Jazz from Miller to Marsalis

Featuring the big band Kyle Athayde Dance Party
From Glenn Miller and Count Basie, to Duke Ellington and Wynton Marsalis, the everyday ordinary sounds of trains have inspired some of the greatest jazz composers and compositions of the 20th century. Railroads were a constant in American culture and deeply connected to the world of working musicians criss-crossing the country. Rob Kapilow and the big band Kyle Athayde Dance Party will unravel and explore trains as both sonic and cultural themes in a whistle-stop tour through some of the 20th century’s greatest big-band masterpieces. From Miller's "Chattanooga Choo Choo" to Marsalis's "Big Train,"  the everyday sounds of trains have been an inspiration to some of the greatest jazz composers in history.
