The legendary Jimmy Heath brings his swinging 16-piece big band to the stage. A multi-Grammy nominated band leader, composer, saxophonist, and flutist, he has performed with Miles Davis, Ray Charles, Dizzy Gillespie, and dozens of other Jazz greats over his 70-year career.
Award-winning vocalist and vocal coach Alyson Williams has filled the airwaves with her versatile singing styles: R&B, Blues, and Jazz. As an accomplished recording artist and concert performer, she has toured nationally and internationally wowing audiences in small clubs, concert halls, and at festivals.
