As we have previously seen, the Toronto AllStar Bigband recreates the stylish sounds of the Swing Era with full brassy gusto and luster.
But the BigBand era featured many great singers like Nat King Cole, Ella Fitzgerald, The Andrews Sisters, Frank Sinatra, Doris Day, etc. And the Toronto AllStar BigBand has a group of singers that recreate the Swing era songs with more than a dash of style. Here is what was to be found at the Beaches Summer Jazz Festival in Leslieville Park:
The good news is that The Toronto AllStar Bigband is truly out and about this summer with upcoming concerts in July [and more in August too]:
July 13th – 3:00 to 7:00PM at Fairmount Park Farmers Market
July 14th – 3:00 to 7:00PM at East Lynn Park Farmers Market
