STIGERS SINGS SINATRA
Vail Jazz and the Ritz-Carlton Bachelor Gulch present an extraordinary evening of music, celebrating Frank Sinatra. From one blue-eyed talent to another, vocalist and sax man Curtis Stigers, a long-time Vail favorite, offers his own brand of cool, subtle swing and his well-seasoned voice as the perfect guide for this remarkable evening of big band swing. Backing Curtis will be the H2 Big Band, a world-class 17-piece ensemble under the co-leadership of trumpeter Al Hood and pianist Dave Hanson. Together they will perform the crooner’s classic songbook with the original arrangements penned by the legendary composer/arranger/conductor Nelson Riddle. Riddle started his relationship with Sinatra in 1953 with “I’ve Got the World on a String,” which continued through 25 albums over 26 years. Sinatra, Stigers, Riddle… too wonderful for words!
