Renowned vocal star of the international stage in performances with symphony orchestras and big bands, Dee Daniels joins the SRJO for a swingin’ concert of her favorite music—from the jazz hits of Billie Holiday and Sarah Vaughn to great American songbook classics by Gershwin, Porter and Kern, plus modern hits and even her own originals. Dee is a unique talent who transcends all musical borders as she shares her remarkable four-octave range and jazz styling infused with gospel and blues. This concert will feature special arrangements from her most recent CD recordings, including “Nature Boy” and “Almost Like Being In Love.” SRJO fans describe Dee’s performances as “spellbinding” and “captivating,” and you won’t want to miss her in another stellar performance.
The award-winning, 17-piece Seattle Repertory Jazz Orchestra (SRJO) is the Northwest’s premier big band jazz ensemble, co-directed by drummer Clarence Acox, nationally recognized director of bands at Seattle’s Garfield High School, and saxophonist/arranger Michael Brockman, long-time faculty member at the University of Washington School of Music.
The ensemble includes many of the region’s best-loved jazz soloists and bandleaders, and their extensive and growing repertoire is drawn from the 100-year history of jazz, from turn-of-the-20th century ragtime to turn-of-the-21st century avant-garde.
Recently, the cities of Seattle and Kirkland and the state of Washington proclaimed October 4th “Seattle Repertory Jazz Orchestra Day” in honor of the organization’s achievements. Their newest compact disc, “Benny Carter’s Kansas City Suite,” which features narration from Clarence Acox and a performance by the late Hadley Caliman, was released in November 2014 and has already achieved wide sales throughout the region.
