The Band

The Montclair Women’s Big Band strutted its stuff at PAJA’s winter concert on January 9 at the Menlo-Atherton High School’s beautiful Center For The Performing Arts. Led by trumpeter Ellen Seeling and saxophonist Jean Fineberg, the band was in fine form as it sizzled its way through such swing/jazz classics as In the Mood, Caravan, and a high-energy closing rendition of Sing Sing Sing. Other highlights were arrangements of Joe Henderson’s “Recordame” and Stanley Turrentine’s “Sugar.”

The magnificent Bay Area vocalist Kenny Washington joined the band for four tribute songs to Frank Sinatra and Billie Holiday, including “Good Morning Heartache” and “God Bless The Child”.
