After a 15-year hiatus, the Lionel Hampton Big Band is back on stage, promising an energetic evening of jazz, swing and bebop. The youngest brother in the venerable first family of jazz, vibraphonist Jason Marsalis leads this 16-strong group, comprised of musicians who played with renowned bandleader/musician Lionel Hampton himself. Don’t miss this night of swinging jazz from Hampton’s repertoire, including favorites by Dizzy Gillespie, Frank Foster, Quincy Jones and more.
