Tampa Bay Jazz guru Dr. David Manson directs the 18-member Helios Jazz Orchestra, which is fronted by vocalist and pianist Scotty Wright for a unique big band show this Tuesday at Palladium Theater in St. Petersburg.
California jazz musician Wright has been in the biz for over 40 years, and has traveled the world sharing his talent. Expect stellar arrangements of classic jazz pieces like “Jeannine” by Duke Pearson.
And Hough Hall will be at half-capacity and masks are required for everyone—vaxxed or not. Check spcollege.edu for current COVID-19 protocols at this SPC-owned venue.
