JazzMN Orchestra

The JazzMN big band breaks some new ground with their latest concert. It's unusual for the group to schedule a Sunday afternoon show, and their special guest is rather unusual, as well -- New York Voices, the Grammy-winning singing group, experts at scatting and modern harmony. The four-piece ensemble -- Peter Eldridge, Darmon Meader, Kim Nazarian and Lauren Kinhan -- is known for putting its jazz spin on pop classics, including a rather sublime version of Laura Nyro's "Stoned Soul Picnic," and a hit-and-miss album of 14 Paul Simon covers. On the highbrow tip, New York Voices has also shared a CD of musical settings of Rainer Maria Rilke poems with perennial Oscar winner, Meryl Streep. Tom Surowicz
