A Jazzy Night With Jiggs Whigham and the Disneyland Resort 2017 All-American College Band

JIggs Whigham and the Disneyland Resort 2017 All-American College Band

Throughout each summer the Disneyland Resort All-American College Band has guest clinicians join the band, mentor them, and then perform with them. This week, the band was joined by jazz great Jiggs Whigham. Whigham first garnered attention in the music world when he played with the Glenn Miller Orchestra, directed by Ray McKinley. A couple of years later he was first and solo trombonist with Stan Kenton. He has a fantastic career that has spanned the globe. Now he is a soloist and clinician worldwide, conductor of the BBC Big Band in Great Britain, artistic director of the Berlin Jazz Orchestra and visiting tutor at the Royal Northern College of Music in Manchester, England. He is also the musical director of the LaJJOB (Brandenburger Youth Jazz Orchestra) and artistic director of the BUJAZZO (german jazz orchestra).

On August 2nd, Jiggs Whigham led and performed with the Disneyland Resort 2017 All-American College Band. Watch this concert here:
