Svetlana’s Big Band combines classic big band sound, thrilling arrangements by the best up and coming big band arrangers, and Svetlana’s own captivating front woman stage presence and vocals that are at once “lush” (NY Music Daily) and “energetic” (Wall Street Journal)! Svetlana’s Big Band reflects the idealism of the sound of classic swing big bands while at the same time offering a thrilling experience that can be appreciated both by the jazz lovers and the 21st century modern audiences alike! Just for this Valentine’s Day Eve Svetlana has prepared a lustrous dynamic (and romantic!) set of her favorite love songs, including big band arrangements of her chart-topping movie soundtracks’ record, the serpentine jazz love song classics and her uplifting originals.
The band’s Music Director is Emily Fredrickson – a trombonist, arranger, and composer currently based in New Orleans, Louisiana. She is the director of the Dee Dee Bridgewater Big Band and has arranged over 200 performed works for various ensembles including Kurt Elling, Ledisi, Eric Benét, Aaron Neville, Allen Toussaint, and many more. The band includes NYC top talent, including Jason Marshall, Nicole Glover, Willerm Delisfort, Curtis Nowosad, Wayne Tucker, Anthony Hervey, Gina Benalcazar, more.
