The Capitol Bones All-Brass Big Band presents “A Stan Kenton Christmas” featuring vocalist Lena Seikaly. Seikaly was voted best vocalist and best composer by the Washington CityPaper’s annual Jazzies awards, and was a semi-finalist for the 2015 Thelonious Monk Jazz competition.

Opening up the show will be The National Jazz Workshop All-Star Jazz Orchestra directed by Matt Niess. The band showcases incredible regional talent and tomorrow’s jazz super stars. This group has performed with Doc Severinsen, Wynton Marsalis, Terell Stafford, and others.

Twenty five years ago, five of the top trombonists from the District teamed up to make expand the repertoire for their instrument. They called themselves the Capitol Bones, a trombone band band with a modern twist. The group played successfully throughout the country and as far away as California, Texas and Alaska. They came up with another idea- expand into an all-brass big band, and revisit the creative world of Stan Kenton featuring music the 1961 album Merry Christmas. They only group to receive a blessing from the Stan Kenton estate, The Capitol Bones All-Brass Big Band has become a DC Holiday tradition. Featuring vocalist Lena Seikaly and new arrangements, this dynamic performance will be an event you will want to see and hear each year.

On Behalf of the Carlyle Club: Glenn Miller Orchestra Christmas
Dec 14 @ 7:30 pm

“A band ought to have a sound all of its own sound.  It ought to have a personality” — Glenn Miller

The Road Book carried by the Glenn Miller Orchestra adds up to over 300 charts-many of them out of the original library. Today, the complete library totals over 1,700 compositions including all of the original charts from both the civilian band and the Army Air Force Band. Of course, all of the biggest hits are included in a regular program. But so are arrangements of less well-known tunes like The White Cliffs of Dover, Rainbow Rhapsody, Everybody Loves My Baby, and That’s Sabotage. The Miller library features contributions from many fine arrangers including Bill Finegan, Jerry Gray, Billy May, Mort Lindsay, Deane Kinkaide, Joe Cribari, and Dave Wolpe. They have added such numbers as Over the Rainbow, September Morn, The Body Electric from the T.V. series Fame, Up Where We Belong, from the hit movie, An Officer and a Gentleman, and Star Wars/War of The Stars. The Glenn Miller Orchestra has always been very musical, disciplined, and visually entertaining. And it has its own distinctive sound.” That sound is created by the clarinet holding the melodic line, doubled or coupled with the tenor sax playing the same notes; and the harmonies produced by three other saxophones, while growling trombones and wailing trumpets add their oo-ahs.
