Lowriders bring forth new road beasts in Evolution
Lowriders bring forth new road beasts in Evolution

With wild drums and blaring brass, the original big band music of musicians like Tommy Dorsey and his orchestra really got people moving during the 1940s. Classic swing is intoxicating. It can get you lindy hopping through an otherwise ordinary day, or at best, it will get you high twirling a partner on a dance floor. Though Dorsey, the so-called "sentimental gentleman of swing," is not around to lead them, his band survives in a seventeen-person touring outfit. Led by Buddy Morrow, the Tommy Dorsey Orchestra plays homage not only to Dorsey, but to this sizzling genre of American music. The Gold Coast Jazz Society presents a performance by the TDO beginning at 7:45 p.m. at the Broward Center for the Performing Arts, 201 SW Fifth Ave., Fort Lauderdale. Tickets range from $18 to $32. Call 954-462-0222. (JCR)
