James's Dapogny's Chicagoans perform traditional jazz of the 1920's and 1930's. They first played together thirty years ago and have developed a repertoire drawing from not only Jelly Roll Morton and Benny Goodman, but from many other jazz greats as well as from America's great popular repertoire. In addition, they perform many original compositions. James Dapogny, a hard-driving, sensitive pianist, is also an arranger, bandleader and author. An award-winning teacher, he is professor of music at the University of Michigan. You'll hear music ranging from Morton's Wolverine Blues to Ellington's I Got Bad And That Ain't Good to Gershwin's Oh Lady Be Good.
James Dapogny's Chicagoans are making their second appearance at the Festival Concert Series after they were received with tremendous enthusiasm January 22, 2000.
James Dapogny's Chicagoans are Stomp Off recording artists and
are represented by Zajonc/Valenti Management.
