New World School of the Arts and Dillard Center for the Arts, both finalist bands at the Essentially Ellington festival in NYC have come together again to present the second annual Battle of the Bands concert. “It’s not a ‘battle’ really,” commented Jim Gasior, director of the Jazz Program at New World School of the Arts, “there is actually a strong kinship between members of our band and members of theirs. Some of the students even play music together when they’re not in school!” Featuring music by Count Basie, Duke Ellington and others, Battle of the Bands is co-sponsored by the Miami Jazz Coop as a fundraiser for both school programs.
