Best of the Best (Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays)
A mighty marimba pulse, a sizzling-hot sax and clarinet duet, a brassy cascade of piano chords, a lilting flamenco guitar, and some fiesta-flavored percussion make up this spirited romp through the roots and offshoots of Dixieland. This medley is propelled by the glorious melodies from "When The Saints Go Marching In" and "Basin Street Blues."
This piece takes you on a playful musical journey and mixes in incredible classical notes. The author is clearly talented, and have the ability to craft something that will make anyone get up and dance. Listeners hear hints of jazz with an overwhelming amount of excitement in every note. This music gives me that "fiesta" feel that everyone can truly get down to, while dancing it out with their loved ones.
$75 per person.
