A New Record Label! First Release: With a Swing!
EXCITING NEWS! The Community Arts Program (CAP) now has a record label: CAP Records. This new label is dedicated to young musicians’ recording projects that foster the next generation of studio musicians, marketers and project developers. With a Swing! is the first CAP Records release! With a Swing! features the Coral Gables Congregational United Church of Christ Community Arts Program (CAP) ALL-STAR Jazz Ensemble comprised of South Florida’s most-talented young jazz musicians under the direction of Daniel Strange.
You may have heard this amazing group of ALL-STAR talent when they opened this past summer for the Preservation Hall Jazz Band and last summer for the Count Basie Orchestra! To echo the words of Preservation Hall Jazz Band and Count Basie Orchestra members: “These kids are REALLY terrific!”
PURCHASE NOW from iTunes & Amazon!
What You’ll Receive!
However you purchase, you’ll receive 11 tracks of swingin’ jazz that span from Duke Ellington, Charlie Parker and Dizzy Gillespie to Clark Terry and Matt Harris.
Louis Prima’s “Sing, Sing, Sing” was the first jazz piece to ever resound within Carnegie Hall and made a BIG hit of the jazz art form. You’ll hear why when you listen to the first track on With a Swing!. George Cory’s “I Left My Heart in San Francisco” will take you back to the Count Basie Orchestra era. Duke Ellington’s “Prelude to a Kiss” will entrance, while Matt Harris’ “El Gatote”will have even the most sedate doing the mambo! Seven additional tracks serve up more swingin’ surprises!
What You’ll Do!
Your purchase of With a Swing! will positively impact the lives of many and, most of all, children. With its Conservatory for the Arts, the Community Arts Program brings music training to youth while also helping those young musicians who cannot afford the training they need. This includes classroom training and active-learning ensembles (i.e., Creative Strings and—as part of the CAP Miami Jazz Institute—the CAP Jazz PREP Band and the ALL-STAR Jazz Ensemble) for positive social and musical interaction. The Community Arts Program Summer Concert Series offers concerts to the community at large with a roster of internationally-renowned classical and jazz artists who also teach our Young Musicians’ Summer Master Classes. And now, CAP Records supports young musicians’ recording projects to foster the next generation of stellar studio musicians, marketers and project developers.
