Award-winning master vibraphonist Joe Locke and vocalist extraordinaire Kenny Washington join the SNJO once again to play a fabulous selection of tracks taken from the modern American songbook – a rich and weighty tome running to several volumes of wonderfully popular songs.

Singer-songwriters such as Stevie Wonder, Billy Joel and Joni Mitchell brought heartfelt soul music to their work, while artists and performers like Earth, Wind & Fire, Led  Zeppelin and Steely Dan showered their enduring recordings with jazz, funk, orchestral and eclectic ornamentation. The platinum success of their gold-plated careers is in no small part due to the availability of jazz music and jazz masters as a fountainhead of knowledge, artistry and intellect.
