Over the course of a staggering 50 recordings and numerous popular PBS specials spread over a quarter-century, John Tesh has never failed to inspire masses of fans with his always-evolving musical muses. Launching with his Emmy-winning, synth-driven sports music, he conquered the emerging smooth jazz genre in the ’90s with his saxophone series and later became a force in the CCM/Worship world with best-selling recordings that found inventive musical ways to share his deep faith.
On Big Band Live, John highlights the repertoire from his 2012 album “Big Band”. This infectious debut album in the big-band arena was accompanied by a PBS event called “John Tesh Big Band Live!”
Using a 7-piece band that includes a 3-piece horn section, John performs exciting and richly arranged big band standards as a singer and ensemble leader with classic selections that include “The Summer Wind,” “I’ve Got the World on a String,” “Blue Skies,” “In the Mood,” “Sway,” and “Beyond the Sea.” He also incorporates his renowned originals along with personal stories and photos of his life and career path that led him from local radio to hosting Entertainment Tonight, to his musical career with one of the top PBS specials of all time.
