Vail Jazz Winter Series: Professor Cunningham and His Old School
January 12, 201720 Vail Road, Vail, CO
Led by reedman and vocalist Adrian Cunningham, Professor Cunningham and His Old School is comprised of some of the most distinguished musicians on the New York scene, playing swinging and grooving music in the aesthetic of Sidney Bechet, Fats Waller, Professor Longhair and even Fats Domino! Their repertoire is deeply steeped in the New Orleans tradition, and is marked by hot jazz, growling horn, and grooving rhythms. This year’s lineup boasts swinging bands, stunning vocalists, and exciting musical pairings, all hosted in a beautiful new venue: the terrace at Ludwig’s. Ludwig’s terrace at the Sonnenalp hotel will transform into an elegant alpine jazz club, complete with dinner service.
