The Colorado Jazz Repertory Orchestra (CJRO) brings in the new year with two evenings of live jazz that will delight its listeners. From Counts to Dukes, jazz has a long lineage of royalty and heirs, and a fresh take on many of these greats will be heard when the CJRO big band takes the Arvada Center stage and on stage at Lone Tree Arts Center. Songs featured include Duke Ellington’s “Jack the Bear,” Billy Strayhorn’s beautiful ballad, “Star Crossed Lovers,” and Count Basie’s “In a Mellow Tone.” Led by CJRO artistic director, Drew Zaremba, this promises to be a fantastic night of big band music! Vocalist Marion Powers will be featured along with the full orchestra.
