In honor of all our veterans, Sentimental Journey Big Band is ready, willing, and able to perform the swing and jazz that brought our country through the second world war. These are the melodies that linger in your mind long after the show. We bring back a time when the music of artists like Glenn Miller and Benny Goodman, and the songs of Vera Lynn and Judy Garland kept spirits high in America.
Vocalist / Director Altha Morton has appeared throughout the East singing Big Band, Jazz, Country, Gospel, and Pop music. Some of her career highlights include national record releases, opening for Johnny Cash, Bobby Bare, Johnny Lee, and Mel Tillis. She is a professional songwriter belonging to ASCAP and has performed at the Tennessee Performing Arts Center in Nashville and the Songwriter’s Hall of Fame celebration in New York City.
Music Director Curt Morton brings to life the swing and jazz that lifted the spirit of a country facing tremendous challenges. His education included a study of Big Band Music with Tommy Tucker and Jazz with Gary Burton. Curt says “The Sentimental Journey Big Band brings a fresh approach to our music, yet still shows respect for the stars of the past.”
