9:00 – 12:00: Stan Rubin Orchestra feat. Joe Politi
“Swing is a form of music that grew out of jazz,” explained Stan Rubin. “The beauty of big-band swing is that it combines musical structure with improvisation, the hallmark of jazz, but swing doesn’t abandon the melody like some modern jazz.” As ruler of his particular kingdom, Stan built over many decades in a library of swing, a collection of the arrangements played by the likes of Goodman, the Dorsey Brothers, Artie Shaw, Duke Ellington, Count Basie, Harry James and a half-dozen others who swung America from the 1930s into the early 50s. And he continues to keep this brand of music on the menu, through live appearances by the Stan Rubin Orchestra.
