Artist of the day: Dan McMillion Jazz Orchestra
When you think of Tampa’s Rock the Park concert series, you typically don’t think of big-band jazz. But for the final Rock the Park show of 2012, the Dan McMillion Jazz Orchestra will provide a nice break from the norm.
The longtime trumpeter and stalwart of the Tampa Bay jazz scene will perform alongside Red Room Cinema and November Rush next Thursday, Dec. 6. McMillion’s wide-ranging style is frequently compared to Maynard Ferguson, so he’ll fill Curtis Hixon Park with his electric solos.
