The traditional jazz and swing band Cornet Chop Suey (pictured) will record their next CD in a live session at 7:00 p.m., Tuesday, July 19 at the Sheldon Concert Hall.
They've already got a title - Mr. Lucky, from the Henry Mancini composition - and they should be quite familiar with the surroundings, as their most recent CD prior to this, Live at the Sheldon, was, as you might guess, recorded at the very same venue.
Mr. Lucky will be Cornet Chop Suey's ninth self-released CD, and will feature songs by Mancini, Buddy Rich, Sidney Bechet, Duke Ellington, Gerry Mulligan, King Oliver, and the band's trumpeter and vocalist Brain Casserly. Tickets for the concert/live recording session will $10, available only at the door. Concertgoers also may order advance copies of Mr. Lucky for $12.
