Jazz at Lincoln Center
Tonight's big band battle is a feel-good, dance-up-a-storm, interactive jazz experience akin to those that originated in Harlem's Swing Era landmarks. This special event showcases two of New York's hottest young big bands – together on one stage – in a high-energy evening. Drummer/bandleaders Sammy Miller and Evan Sherman, known to pack the house at Dizzy's Club Coca-Cola Late Night Sessions, will deliver a full sensory experience through fast-paced music, friendly one-upmanship, and a bit of comedy. Both bands are intergenerational all-star groups, and they have repeatedly proven their ability to rouse up a crowd. Join them in The Appel Room for an entertaining night of great music and uplifting companionship.
