Established bandleader, composer, performer, and improviser Aurora Nealand honed her craft on the street corners and clubs of New Orleans, her adopted home. With The Royal Roses, she has pulled together a group of some of the most beloved, skilled, and swinging musicians on today’s scene. Tonight, she dives into the city’s lush jazz past, drawing on gems by Sidney Bechet and others to capture that pulse and swing just right for the Lindy Hop.
