JAZZIN’ IT UP AT UTAH STATE UNIVERSITY

 

LOGAN — The Department of Music jazz students are jazzin’ things up for their performance Jazz Combos on Tuesday, March 19, at 7:30 p.m. in the Performance Hall on Utah State University’s Logan campus.
       

“This concert will feature some of our best students improvising, which has always been the heart and soul of jazz music,” said Max Matzen, assistant professor of trumpet in the Caine College of the Arts.
       

Several jazz combo groups will perform, including the Caine Jazz Combo, coached by Matzen. 
       

Every student in the Caine Jazz Combo will be soloing, performing a repertoire challenging in many ways and on a high level, said Matzen. The works of jazz musicians Ryan Kisor and Terence Blanchard, among others, will be performed.
       

Another jazz combo group creatively named  “The Hellin’ Kellins” will also perform, featuring a student composition. That work, “Nasty’s Groove,” is composed by Trevor Vincent, a senior who plays the alto saxophone. 
       

“Round Midnight” by Thelonius Monk and “Rio Funk” by Lee Ritenour” will also be performed.  
       

“Students will perform a repertoire challenging in a multitude of ways but also revealing the depth of our program,” said Matzen.
       

Tickets for Jazz Combos are $10 general admission, $8 seniors and youth, $5 USU faculty and staff and free for USU students with ID. For more information or tickets, visit the Caine College of the Arts Box Office in room 139B in the Chase Fine Arts Center, call 435-797-8022 or go see the college’s Production Services website (arts.usu.edu).
