So Long to Henry Mancini: The Panther Prowls!
The Austin Jazz Workshop’s Nineteenth Season wrapped up on May 31st, 2013, with a tribute to the great American composer of television and film Henry Mancini. Vocalists Dianne Donovan, Larisa Montanaro, and Shawnda Birch joined the AJW, backed by James Polk, Floyd Domino, Michael Stevens, Glenn Rexach, Jimmy Shortell, Mike Piccione, Rob Kazenel, Masumi Jones, and Michael Melinger. Children got into the Mancini spirit by playing Duck, Duck, Panther and clapping along to the Peter Gunn Theme.
