  4. JazzMN Orchestra Presents the Music of Little Big Bands

    2400 Lindbergh Dr
    Minnetonka, MN 55305
    Call: (612) 242-4791

    Little big bands--groups larger than a combo but not a full big band--have existed throughout jazz history, from Miles Davis's "Birth of the Cool", Gerry Mulligan's augmented combos, and Maynard Ferguson's Big Bop Nouveau, to contemporary groups such as Gordon Goodwin's Little Phat Band, Snarky Puppy or JazzMN saxophonist Pete Whitman's X-Tet. Due to the mid-size and often unorthodox instrumentation, these great charts haven't been played nearly enough, something JazzMN will look to remedy in November.
