Move over, Marilyn Maye. It’s not official, but sources say the most fiendish Halloween ticket in town may go down October 31st at Jardine’s jazz club on the Plaza. That because the Max Weinberg Big Band is rumored to be close to inking a deal to raise the dead for two shows there that night.
Weinberg, known as the drummer for Bruce Springsteen and for heading the late night TV action for Conan O’Brien will reportedly be haunting the club with a 17-piece band. Weinberg’s 15-piece group that toured earlier this summer included a 12-piece horn section, five saxophones up front, three trombones in a middle row and four trumpets in a back row, piano and upright bass.
And of course, Weinberg on drums.
One highlight of Weinberg’s show at the Count Basie Theatre last June in New Jersey:
A Beatles Medley of the songs, “Help,” “Do You Want to Know a Secret” and “Kansas City.”
