The Marcus Shelby Orchestra performs Shelby's Black Ball: The Negro Leagues and the Blues, premiering an extended version of the piece for big band. The composition pays homage to the first black baseball players, as well as the "territory bands" that toured specific regions of the United States in the early 20th century. Concertgoers should expect surprises: clowns and physical comedy are on the agenda, too.
Jamie Zee is thrilled to be playing with Marcus Shelby's band at the 2019 EMMY Gala this year. She will be performing some of the jazz standards.
