COUNTDOWN TO NYE
Give your Thursday night a new rhythm as you head to the train or wait for a colleague to join you for dinner. Jazz at Lincoln Center brings New York City’s hottest young jazz bands to the plaza, creating the feeling of an intimate club amidst the lights and sounds of Times Square.
Charles Turner & Uptown Swing is bringing the swing and spirit of Harlem to dancers and music lovers around the world. Playing vibrant Swing, virtuosic Bebop, and vital Blues, the band extends music from the swing era to present day. From music played in the 1930s to original tunes, the band is set to keep you dancing and your spirit lifted. Mr. Turner leads the band with the smoothness of Nat King Cole, the power of Joe Williams, and the dexterity of Rudy Valle. Turner’s voice expresses every color and tone of swing from up tempo hot jazz to sentimental ballads, a diverse palette of music showcased to ensure an incredible night. Be prepared to feel free and express yourself fully, as the band blows and billows. This is a communal experience, with dance and music coming together as one to create an unforgettable night and long-lasting memories under the spirit of swing. Bring that swag because swag is swing and swing is swag! And remember “It don’t mean a thing if it ain’t got that swing!”
