Desert City Jazz presented “Drop the Needle II” on April 14, 2024. In this sold-out, well-received show, we presented some of the best funk, R&B, rock, and pop tunes from the 70s and 80s in exciting big band arrangements.

Here’s “Blackbird,” one of the Beatles’ most enduring hits. This arrangement by Mike Tomaro is a fresh, jazzy treatment of this classic tune. It features Andy Rich on trumpet. Enjoy!
