Jazz Night

The holiday season heats up with another cool night of jazz, courtesy of TWU’s School of the Arts, Media and Culture.  On , SAMC Music’s will have some fun as the 14 versatile members keep rearranging into different sized combos throughout the evening.

Come along for a wild ride, from an intimate improvisation on , to the lush 8-piece ensemble on Pat Metheny’s , from harp and double bass duo to saxophone quartet, from Benny Goodman and Duke Ellington through to John Coltrane and Donny McCaslin.

“This is our most ambitious program and most experienced group of players yet,” says SAMC Music professor , who directs the Jazz Combo.  “Hearing these musicians play is more than an opportunity to hear great tunes, you get to watch them improvise and create new music on the spot.”

Doors open at 7pm.  Come early to get a seat!
