An Afternoon with Jens Wendelboe and a Nordic Sound - An American Jazz Orchestra

Sun, November 7 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm EST

This concert has two unique sets - and something for all music lovers and generations.

In-person registration is recommended. Please register here.

First Set:   Live Streaming CD Release Event - "Against All Odds"

The first half of the show will be a live release concert of Jens' 8th big band CD "Against All Odds".  A Nordic Sound Jazz Orchestra is a 19 piece ensemble playing all original compositions and arrangements by award winning composer, arranger, and trombonist - Jens Wendelboe.

Be prepared to be "blown away" by the uniqueness of the sound and compositions, the talent, and the good energy of the music. Think of it as Duke Ellington meets Frank Zappa.

Featured artists from the CD, Stephanie Harrison (vocal), and Joel A. Martin (piano) will be performing, along with accomplished musicians from the NY Metropolitan area.

Second Set:  A New Take on All Time Favorites

After intermission the band will play Jens'  unique arrangements of well known songs from artists such as Aretha Franklin, Burt Bacharach, and more.
