Their library of more than 200 songs includes Latin, Rock, Waltzes and Jump Swing, and arrangements from Count Basie, Duke Ellington, Glenn Miller, Benny Goodman and Woody Herman. The membership of this dynamic group consists of musicians from many areas of Arkansas, all of whom aspire to the highest level of musicianship and are dedicated to the perpetuation of the "Big Band" sound. Stardust specializes in music for dances and special occasions. If you are interested in music for concerts, festivals or other events, we recommend our sister group, The Arkansas Jazz Orchestra -- the most exciting big band in the land.

The Story: That's Jazz!" It is said that Mr. Louis Armstrong was once asked, "what is Jazz?" a questions that many still pose today. His whimsical reply, "Man, if you have to ask you'll never know." "The Story: That's Jazz!" was written to address that same question. Its goal, however, is to provide every listener, whether novice or ardent enthusiast, with a more edifying answer. Project 57: Sharing "The Story: That's Jazz!" is a grassroots campaign to sow the answer. A win-win scenario that seeks to foster new deotees while bolstering jazz artist aspirants, clubs, festivals, publications, radio and recordings; a harvest that will benefit everyone, if those of us who cherish this magnificent art form do all we can to fertilize the effort.
