UConn Jazz Combos

All five University of Connecticut jazz combos will perform next week on the von der Mehden stage.  Based on what I heard at the Jazz Showcase concert in February, this show will have plenty of variety ---- ranging from traditional jazz performed by Bill Reynolds' combo, "the Savoy Syncopaters" to modern selections by Chris Cheek or Kurt Rosenwinkel, performed by Gregg August's group "The UConn Jazz Quintet".  I coach a combo of freshmen who have been focusing on memorizing standard repertoire.  Their group name, "Raising Standards" not only reflects the memorization project, but their work ethic as well.  I hope you will join us.  Monday, March 28th at 8 p.m.
