Celebrating The Holiday Season and
Eli Newberger's 75th Birthday with Swingin’ Gershwin
ELI & The Hot Six featuring Eli Newberger on tuba, Bob Winter on piano, Herb Gardner on trombone, Bo Winiker on trumpet, Ted Casher on clarinet, soprano and tenor saxes, Jimmy Mazzy on banjo and vocals and Jeff Guthery on drums plus, singer Rebecca Sullivan.
Eli & The Hot Six + Rebecca Sullivan is a hot new jazz ensemble that plays in a new style they call Contemporary Classic Jazz. Led by tuba virtuoso, Eli Newberger, they feature swinging New Orleans rhythms that propel brilliant instrumental soloists alongside a stunning singer, Rebecca Sullivan. The band programs its shows with great finesse, colorfully mixing enchanting mini-ensembles alongside thrilling, full-throated evocations of traditional jazz favorites, show tunes and pop songs from the 1920s to the 1960s as it draws its material equally from George Gershwin as from Louis Armstrong and doesn't shy away from rare ragtime like "Oh By Jingo" and esoteric Ellingtonia like "Sqeeze Me, But Don't Tease Me!"
The band's new disc, Eli & The Hot Six LIVE Contemporary Classic Jazz, features Boston's finest, legendary musicians who will also perform at Scullers: Eli Newberger on tuba, Bob Winter on piano, Herb Gardner on trombone, Bo Winiker on trumpet, Ted Casher on clarinet, soprano and tenor saxes, Jimmy Mazzy on banjo and vocals and Jeff Guthery on drums plus, singer Rebecca Sullivan.
