Swingin’ Jazz at Franchesco’s

Right in Our Region:
Tony Bennett, Duke Ellington, Nat King Cole, Louie Armstrong, Frank Sinatra, Ella Fitzgerald, Sammy Davis Jr., The Andrews Sisters, Rosemary Clooney. The songs of these artists have become standards that represent an era of American history. Which is why jazz saxophonist Harlan Jefferson is honoring them. On Nov. 29, he’s presenting “It Don’t Mean a Thing if it Ain’t Got that Swing: A Tribute to the Legends of Jazz,” at Franchesco’s in Rockford. “Many people love this kind of music, and they don’t get to hear it live in this area,” says the Rockford-born band leader and multiple RAMI winner. Open your e-magazine now to learn more about Jazz at Franchesco’s.
