Merry & Bright!: A Big, Brassy Christmas with Charles Lazarus
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 concert will feature acclaimed vocalists Tonia Hughes and Bruce Henry on several numbers, including a soulful and sassy 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 nine-piece Lazarus Brass bring energy and excitement to a number of tunes, including a New Orleans Second Line take on "Frosty the Snowman."
