During the first half of the program the Goodwin Big Band will feature Doug Graham, Jim Hall, and others in the ensemble. Unbound Dance will join the band for a rousing version of Duke Ellington's "It Don't Mean a Thing (If It Ain't Got That Swing").  During the second half, jazz vocalist Marjorie Barnes joins the group, singing some new arrangements by Dick. Barnes (who resides in the Netherlands) was a member of the Fifth Dimension and an original cast member of Broadway's "Ain't Misbehavin'".  Goodwin commented that he had worked with Ms. Barnes before and that she is a fine singer and a dynamic entertainer. Tickets are $40 and all proceeds benefit Trustus.
