Ella & Basie! A Special Tribute
featuring vocalist Lena Seikaly and introducing the Carlyle Club Jazz Orchestra!
This will be a special night as we introduce for the very first time our own Carlyle Club Jazz Orchestra performing the hits of the legendary Count Basie Orchestra and Ella Fitzgerald. The CCJO features top musicians from the Washington, DC and Baltimore regions, an area known for its deep bench of jazz artists. For this performance, the CCJO will join forces with tour de force vocalist Lena Seikaly, to recreate the magic that so many experienced years ago. The band will perform favorites from the 1966 Basie and Frank Sinatra recording Live at the Sands and the 1963 album arranged by Quincy Jones Ella and Basie!
