Benny and Beyond; Eddie Daniels, clarinet. Travel back to the era of big bands and dancehalls when Benny Goodman was “The King of Swing” with “Renaissance” clarinetist Eddie Daniels and Northern Virginia’s treasured favorite, the Metropolitan Jazz Orchestra. Benny and Beyond pays homage to the legendary band leader and clarinetist-composer who during the 1930s and 1940s had numerous hit singles, including “Let’s Dance,” “Don’t Be That Way,” “Somebody Stole My Gal,” and many, many more. For over 50 years, Eddie Daniels has thrilled audiences and critics alike, with accolades for his masterful playing in classical and jazz idioms. Artistic Director and alto sax virtuoso Jim Carroll—whose long and illustrious career has included performances with the likes of Michael Jackson, Nancy Wilson, Maynard Ferguson, Billy Taylor, Woody Herman and His Thundering Herd, and the Smithsonian Jazz Masterworks Orchestra—leads this swinging evening. Join us for the coolest concert of the season!
