JAZZ | Rick Holland Little Big Band   


Before starting his own ensemble, flugelhorn player Rick Holland paid his dues with the Louie Bellson Big Band, Jimmy Dorsey Orchestra, and Buddy DeFranco's and Terry Gibbs' bands. Now his own Little Big Band specializes in arrangements reminiscent of Gil Evans' "Birth of the Cool" session, including pieces by contemporary arrangers like Brent Wallarab and Bill Dobbins and classics by greats like Duke Ellington and Gerry Mulligan. All of the above is delivered by some of the best players in Rochester.

Rick Holland Little Big Band performs Sunday, August 30, at Lovin' Cup, 300 Park Point Drive. 7 p.m. Free. 292-9940;;
