Jumaane Smith, Michael Bublé’s lead trumpeter, will perform on January 21 at The Palace Danbury Theater.
Together with and his all-star band, Smith will play a mix of jazz and pop standards from his soon to be released debut album.
They will perform titles such as I Only Have Eyes For You, The Way You Look Tonight, Someone To Watch over Me, and What a Wonderful World. This is the music from the Great American Songbook repertoire, the timeless tunes that we all know and love. Smith looks forward to sharing his passion for this music in the intimate setting of the Palace Danbury.
“When you look out into the audience at these shows you see young people, old people, all races. It brings people together,” he said.
Since 2004, Smith has toured and recorded extensively with crooner Michael Bublé. He’s played in historic clubs, massive stadiums and for two sitting U.S. presidents. He’s contributed to several Grammy winning albums as well as playing at the awards ceremony with Stevie Wonder. He’s appeared on Ellen, Oprah, The Today Show, Saturday Night Live and David Letterman. He studied under Wynton Marsalis as a member of the inaugural class of Jazz Studies at Julliard. Not bad for a performer who has just turned 30.
