Merry & Bright: A Big, Brassy Christmas with Charles Lazarus
Merry & Bright:
A Big, Brassy Christmas with Charles Lazarus
With special guests Bruce Henry and Tonia Hughes

Featuring Tommy Barbarella, Jeff Bailey, David Schmalenberger & The Lazarus Brass

From Latin to lounge, groove to gospel, Merry & Bright is a fresh soundtrack for the holidays. Ranging from an intimate duo version of "Christmas Time is Here," to a high-energy, big-band swing arrangement of "We Three Kings," as well as a Latin-tinged arrangement of "Veni, Veni Emmanuel," this concert of highly original takes on Christmas classics is designed to inspire a new family tradition. The list of musicians to be featured at the premiere performance of Charles Lazarus's most recent creative venture reads like a who's who of local luminaries.  The concert will feature acclaimed vocalists Tonia Hughes and Bruce Henry on several numbers, including a soulful and sassy new version of "Baby, It's Cold Outside."  Lazarus' rhythm section, Tommy Barbarella (keyboards), Jeff Bailey (bass), and David Schmalenberger (drums/percussion), provide the tight, seasoned and inventive core upon which the all-brass big band is layered.  Members of the Lazarus Brass, familiar faces to Minnesota Orchestra and SPCO audiences, bring energy and excitement to a number of tunes, including "I Saw Three Ships" and a New Orleans Second Line take on "Frosty the Snowman."
