Jack Allen Big Band

By Frank De Blase

Ain't nothing better than a big wall of swinging brass while you and your baby cut some rug. Rochester big band leader Jack Allen has been blowing his horn for more than 70 years, starting out on street corners in the Portland Avenue neighborhood, leading his own band - The Ziggy Allen Big Band - while attending Franklin High School, blowing reveille during the Korean War, and touring the States with The Tommy Reynolds Big Band. Allen is a class act whose horn blasts beautifully over his awesome charts, and his saxophone section is smoother and creamier than Pittsford Dairy chocolate milk. They don't make 'em like this anymore.

Jack Allen's Big Band plays for the Tim Horton's Foundation, a non-profit charitable organization that sends economically challenged kids to camp, Wednesday, June 6, outside Tim Horton's, 1580 Jefferson Road, 424-4480, 6:30-8 p.m., free.
