Jazz, Jokes, and Juggling (NYC)

News Story

Whether you’re interested in jazz and swing music or the juggling comedic Flying Karamazov Brothers, you’ll find it on or above the Schimmel stage this week.

The Julian Bliss Septet: A Tribute to Benny Goodman
Wednesday, February 10 | 7:30 p.m.
Swing back to the 1930s and 1940s with Julian Bliss, one of the world’s finest contemporary solo clarinetists, and his jazz septet as they honor the musical legacy of the unforgettable 20th century big band leader Benny Goodman. Come for an evening of jazz, swing, and big band standards including "Lady Be Good," "Up a Lazy River," and "Moonglow."

The Flying Karamazov Brothers
Friday and Saturday, February 12–13 | 7:30 p.m.
Expect the unexpected from four self-proclaimed eccentric lunatics spicing things up with a zany showcase filled with laugh-out-loud comedy, wild theatrics, arcane errata, and astonishing juggling feats. Formed at UC Santa Cruz in 1973, the Flying Karamazov Brothers have been seen around the world, on Broadway, on television, and on the big screen, and have shared stages and screens collaborating with Frank Sinatra, the Grateful Dead, Robin Williams, the Who, Danny DeVito, and much more. They are not your father’s wild-haired, flame-throwing, juggling, kilt-and-tutu-wearing performers, except on Sunday, February 14, at 3:00 p.m., when they put on a family fun performance.

Next up: Art History Alive with Janetta Rebold Benton, PhD on February 17; and Blues, Swing, and Boogie Woogie Piano on February 19.
