Simon Bolivar Big Band
Jazz Night in America presents The Simon Bolivar Big Band. For the past 40 years, El Sistema has brought free classical music, instruments and lessons to a quarter million underprivileged kids in Venezuela. The cream of the crop perform for sellout crowds at some of the world’s most prestigious venues. Five years ago they started a new ensemble - The Simon Bolivar Big Band. We’ll hear them play Dizzy Club Coca-Cola at Jazz at Lincoln Center, and learn why jazz is a lot more than just music.
