Event Description

On the eve of America’s entry into World War II, TIME magazine reported that to the German masses the United States meant “sky-scrapers, Clark Gable, and Artie Shaw.” Some 42 years after that, in December 1983, Artie Shaw made a brief return to the bandstand, after thirty years away from music, not to play his world-famous clarinet but to launch his latest (and still touring) orchestra at the newly refurbished Glen Island Casino in New Rochelle, New York. This new Artie Shaw Orchestra remains one of the “swingingest” outfits around. Featuring clarinetist Matt Koza, the group hews to the Shaw legacy, and continues with the time-tested formula that has always pleased a full spectrum of audiences from the ‘Begin the Beguine’ fans of yesteryear to the new jazz fans who want to revel in an exciting and heady evening of swing.
