Brad Shigeta and his Swing Time Band
Brad Shigeta was a featured soloist with Duke Ellington Orchestra and Illinois Jacquet Big Band among others. His plunger style of soloing on the trombone is particularly unique and hard-swinging. The Swing Time Band features arrangements of great Basie and Ellington standards and is made for dancing!
It’s a great night to listen to or dance or a bit of both. Come on out and catch up with old friends, and get to know new friends along the way!
