....with vocalist-saxophonist Curtis Stigers and the JazzMN Orchestra, Minnesota's premiere big band. "Sinatra & Basie - Live at the Sands" will take you back in time when Frank Sinatra and Count Basie rocked the house at the famous Sands Hotel on the Las Vegas Strip! CBS Minnesota (WCCO) said, "This is pure jazz in all its glory." Jazz reviewer Pamela Espeland writes, "…exciting. All those musicians, swinging hard. Horns blaring. Hot solos. And the sound, you feel it on your skin and in your bones." Every time JazzMN performs at the Chanhassen Dinner Theatres it sells out. Don’t miss this rare opportunity to hear JazzMN performing live.
