At our July 2023 concert “The Kings of Swing,” we presented classic big band charts from the greatest band leaders of the swing era.

Here’s our performance of Woody Herman’s memorable, hard-swinging signature tune “Woodchopper’s Ball.”  Released in 1939, this song sold over a million copies. In 2002, it received the Grammy Hall of Fame Award.

Our version features solos by Ray Botte on tenor sax, Mike Wojciechowicz on alto sax, and Dave Hughes on trombone. Enjoy!
