Enjoy this performance excerpt from The Jazz Ambassadors’ tribute to the Greatest Generation! The production provides the soundtrack and stories of the brave men and women who served during the second world war as way to educate future generations about our nation’s history. This Cole Porter classic was originally made famous by clarinet virtuoso Artie Shaw’s swing-style recording in 1938, and artists from Frank Sinatra to Sheryl Crow would go on to cover it. Featured soloists are Sgt. Major Andrew Layton on clarinet and Master Sgt. Patrick Shook on tenor saxophone.
