Theater Talk: Grammy winner George Caldwell is our connection to Basie, Ellington and all that jazz

Sep 11, 2020

He played with Count Basie, he played with Ellington, he wowed audiences at the piano in AIN'T MISBEHAVIN' and SOPHISTICATED LADIES and COOKIN' AT THE COOKERY, all at MusicalFare Theatre, and he's back there, livestreaming on Sept. 17 with jazz vocalist Ms. Alex McArthur and two days later streaming from the Kavinoky with John Fredo, whose jazz roots go back farther than most know.

Grammy award winning jazz pianist George Caldwell can be seen in performance (virtually, livestreamed) on Thursday, September 17 from MusicalFare and Saturday, September 19, from the Kavinoky.
