Sunday 3rd July 2022 – 15:30 – 17:30
Come and unwind with us for a lovely afternoon of Big Band music, where we’ll be focusing on the music of Sammy Nestico.
Sammy began working as an arranger for Count Basie in 1967, and wrote and arranged all the music for Basie’s 1968 LP Basie Straight Ahead. He continued to provide arrangements for Basie until Basie’s death in 1984, and four of Nestico’s collaborations with Basie earned Grammy Awards.
During his career, Nestico composed, arranged, or conducted albums for musicians and singers including Quincy Jones, Phil Collins, Barbra Streisand, Michael Buble, Natalie Cole, Sarah Vaughan, Toni Tennille, Frank Sinatra, and Bing Crosby.
