Join trumpet virtuoso, vocalist, showman and conductor Byron Stripling and Sarasota Orchestra as they get the joint jumping. This swingin' concert is inspired by Harlem's famed hot spot The Cotton Club in its heyday when Duke Ellington, Cab Calloway, Ella Fitzgerald and Billie Holiday showcased American Jazz. In addition to Stripling, who is reminiscent of Louis Armstrong, we bring you vocalist Carmen Bradford and tap dancer and vocalist Ted Louis Levy.
