Great jazz standards celebrate Honourable Lincoln Alexander

News May 11, 2011 Ancaster News

What a unique combination.

The songs have been chosen by the Honourable Lincoln Alexander, they are played by the well-known and accomplished Hamilton All Star Jazz Band and the evening is hosted by Hamiltonian Steve Paikin.

Alexander and Paikin will be interactive with the on-stage entertainment at Redeemer University College auditorium, Friday, May 13 at 7:30 p.m.

Alexander has been an honorary patron of the Hamilton All Star Jazz Band for many years.

In honour of Alexander, this year’s spring concert is the organization’s way of giving back to this great Canadian, as well as providing the community of jazz lovers with a different type of show.

The evening will give insight into Alexander’s years growing up in late 1930s Harlem.

Alexander recalls the Apollo Theatre, the music scene in NYC and his encounters with the great artists of the time, both in Harlem and later in his life.

The concert style is unique as well — well-known songs are interspersed with interview-style commentary.

Tickets can be purchased at hamiltonallstarjazz.com or at the door, $15 senior/adult, $10 student.
