With vocalist Vuyo Sotashe


The New York Youth Symphony Jazz Band is considered one of the best ensembles of its kind. While celebrating the heritage of jazz, the group also values a progressive, emerging new sound. Tonight they will be joined by Vuyo Sotashe, a rising star of the international jazz scene, born in South Africa and based in New York, who was a recent finalist in the Thelonious Monk Institute International Jazz Vocal competition. Dizzy’s Club audiences will hear an exciting program of music from both continents, including classic big band repertoire from the American Songbook and newly commissioned arrangements of traditional Xhosa music. Tonight’s show will also feature the premiere performance of “A Piece for the People” by Nate Sparks, one of jazz’s great young composers.
