All-new arrangements were commissioned especially for the concerts and the original recording was released on Rounder Records. In March 2011, the CAC will partner with the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Foundation to present a reprise of this wildly popular 1996 Big Band concert featuring original vocalist Germaine Bazzle, guest vocalist Ed Perkins and Nicholas Payton, all led by New Orleans’ own David Torkanowsky. The 16-piece CAC Jazz Orchestra includes 5 saxophonists, 4 trumpet players, 4 trombonists, and a rhythm section. This presentation will consist of the arrangements created in 1996, such as: Don’t Get Around Much Anymore, Sometimes I’m Happy, Mood Indigo, and many others.
