USU Guitar, Bass & Drums Festival

This year's festival will feature the Reunion Trio with Bruce Forman (guitar), John Clayton (bass) and Jeff Hamilton (drums) along with Denmark-based vocalist and bassist Kristin Korb.

When guitarist Barney Kessel, bassist Ray Brown, and drummer Shelly Manne came together in 1956, they called their trio the Poll Winners—fitting, as each musician routinely topped DownBeat’s polls for their respective instrument. The five Poll Winners albums on the legendary jazz label Contemporary Records are classics that set the standard for every guitar trio that followed. Forman, Clayton and Hamilton will revisit the original trio’s musical legacy and create a beautiful homage to these extraordinary artists who inspired jazz audiences around the world.

Known for her hard swinging bass lines and sparkling vocals, Kristin Korb has established herself on the jazz stage as an exceptional artist, commanding both instruments with panache, engaging them simultaneously with an ease comparable to breathing. She will be performing with USU guitar professor Corey Christiansen, who was recently listed as one of the top 200 living jazz guitarists on allaboutjazz.com.
