On Saturday night (Oct. 26) at the Wheeler Theater just inside Fort Worden State Park, 200 Battery Way, the band will swing into motion, Goodwin at the helm. Everybody is invited to the show — “a good illustration of how great big band can sound,” said Gregg Miller, Centrum’s jazz programmer.
Tickets are $15 for the 7 p.m. concert via www.centrum.org or 360-385-3012, ext. 110; remaining tickets will be available at the door of the Wheeler Theater starting at 6:30 p.m. Saturday.
Goodwin is known for his scoring and orchestration for the movies, from “Escape to Witch Mountain” to “Get Smart” to “The Incredibles” and “Star Trek: Nemesis.” He also created the music for the classic cult film “Attack of the Killer Tomatoes.”
Goodwin “has extended the possibilities of all the different kinds of music . . . that can be played by a big band,” composer and fellow bandleader Johnny Mandel has said.
Goodwin has won three Emmy awards, and has been nominated for 13 Grammys, winning one for his arrangement of “Incredits” from “The Incredibles.”
