SIZZLING HOT SWING with Sensational Mark O’Connor

Saturday, October 16, 2010-8 PM


Sensational Mark O’Connor and His Hot Swing Put “Le Jazz Hot” on Steroids

When violinist Mark O’Connor released his Hot Swing! CD in 2001, which was a tribute to his great friend and mentor, the legendary French jazz master, Stephane Grappelli, the Chicago Tribune called it “one of the finest discs of his career and one of the greatest jazz violin albums ever.” The ensuing Hot Swing CD, Live in New York, received similar praise. Festival Miami is proud to present Mark O’Connor’s Hot Swing with guitarists Frank Vignola and Julian Lage, and bassist Gary Mazzaroppi.

Mark O’Connor is the 2010-2011 artist-in-residence at the Frost School of Music. See for a list of master classes open to the public.
