  • Mark Shane and Terry Blaine



If you love hot, small-band jazz from America’s Golden Age of Swing, featuring songs made popular by the great vocal and piano jazz stars, treat yourself to Swingtime Duet ~ an evening of Classic Jazz on Friday, April 4, at 8 p.m. The duo of vocalist Terry Blaine and pianist Mark Shane come to Kaplan Hall’s Great Room which overlooks the Hudson River.

Selections for the concert are being carefully chosen from the repertoire of the Swing Era. "My Blue Heaven," "Ain't He Sweet," "Honeysuckle Rose," and "Melancholy Baby" are sure bets to be included. Many more favorites by composers Hoagy Carmichael, Fats Waller, George and Ira Gershwin, Johnny Mercer, James P. Johnson, Art Tatum, Earl Hines, and Teddy Wilson will make the night sparkle.

Blaine’s style of singing is gentle and swinging.

“Her subtly risqué style is infectious, blending the white-glove nonchalance of Lee Wiley with the earthy sauciness of Ethel Waters,” said JazzTimes’ Christopher Loudon.

Shane has developed his own solo style that reflects a true sense of living jazz history and continues the tradition of deep swing and lyrical melodic improvisation. The Mississippi Rag has described him as “one of the great accompanists of his time.”

Tickets are $10 for adults, $5 for senior citizens and SUNY Orange alumni, faculty and staff. Students are free. Tickets are available at the door one hour before concert time or online anytime at www.sunyorange.edu/arts_comm/ticketing.shtml.

SUNY Orange’s Kaplan Hall is located at the corner of Grand and First Streets, Newburgh, where free, secure parking is available in the underground parking garage accessible via First St.

This event is presented by Cultural Affairs. For more information, call 845-341-4891/9386, email cultural@sunyorange.edu or go to www.sunyorange.edu/culturalaffairs.
