An 80th Anniversary Salute

to the King of Swing's Historic 1938 Performance

FEATURING CLARINETIST KEN PEPLOWSKI AND THE SACRAMENTO JAZZ ORCHESTRA

WITH SPECIAL GUESTS CHUCK REDD, EHUD ASHERIE AND ANN ROACH

Friday, January 19, 2018 @ 7:30 pm

It was January 16, 1938 at Carnegie Hall — the hallowed venue for “respectable” classical music. There, Benny Goodman’s band played swing music for the first time, with one of the earliest racially-integrated jazz groups. The Harris Center joins Capital Public Radio in paying tribute to this historic moment as renowned clarinetist Ken Peplowski joins the Sacramento Jazz Orchestra, performing highlights from the famous concert. Peplowski will also lead a quartet (as Goodman did) during a spotlighted section of the concert with Ehud Asherie, “a master of swing and stride” (New Yorker) on piano and the “exquisite” (Jazz Times) Chuck Redd on vibes.
