Smooth Sounds of Route 66 to perform favorites from jazz’s swing era Thursday, April 14, at Tusculum College
The Thomas J. Garland Library Lobby at Tusculum College will be filled with the sounds of one of the most popular periods of jazz music on Thursday, April 14.
The Smooth Sounds of Route 66 will perform favorite songs from jazz’s swing era at 6 p.m. in the lobby of the library on the Tusculum campus. Admission is free and the public is welcome. The swing era was the most popular form of music in the country from the 1930s and the 1940s. Some of the most well-known swing musicians include Count Basie, Duke Ellington, Benny Goodman and Louis Armstrong.
The musical duo of Marsha Griffith, public services librarian at Tusculum, and locally known artist Amy Saxonmeyer are the Smooth Sounds of Route 66. The duo plays a repertoire of jazz and standards as easy on the ear as its name suggests.
