Big Phat Band at The Jazz Bakery May 27th
Gordon Goodwin's Big Phat Band, an 18-piece jazz ensemble, celebrates and personifies the best of the big band tradition with a very contemporary and original sound. Through the writing genius of Gordon Goodwin, SRO audiences have enjoyed one of the most craftsman-like hard swinging large jazz ensembles comprised of L.A.'s finest musicians. Gordon's witty and insightful arrangements propel the listener on a journey through a myriad of styles: latin, blues, swing, classical, hard-hitting jazz, and even an homage to Looney Tunes (!). With two Grammy nominated albums out and The Phat Pack" currently hitting the charts.
The Jazz Bakery is the most prestigious jazz space in Los Angeles -- a serious, no-frills, seven-nights-a-week nonprofit listening room of international renown, where everybody who's anybody has played; where iconic musicians turn up as regularly in the audience as on the bandstand; where just ascending the stage is a sure sign that you've made it into the music's highest ranks.
