UCSC Jazz Ensembles

May 30 @ 7:00 pm

UCSC Director of Jazz Studies professor Karlton Hester will showcase students from his classes. These UCSC Jazz Ensembles will perform composed arrangements as well as their own arrangements of jazz standards and original compositions. Past concerts have included works from composers such as John Coltrane, Charlie Parker, Miles Davis, Charles Mingus, Wayne Shorter, Horace Silver, Don Grolnick, and many more. This evening will feature the UCSC Large Jazz Ensemble. In an effort to promote and perpetuate the indigenous American form of music known as jazz, the UCSC Large Jazz Ensemble continues in its mission to study and perform the finest jazz literature written or arranged for a big band format. Now under the direction of Charles Hamilton, the Large Jazz Ensemble regularly performs both on and off the UCSC campus.
