Join our CSU Jazz Ensembles for a live stream event exploring the 10-piece Jazz repertoire. Smaller sized “big bands” have always existed for various musical and logistical reasons throughout the history of Jazz from the early Kansas City Count Basie groups, through the Miles Davis Nonet, the Marty Paitch Dectet, and many more. Many composers and arrangers have reveled in the light, subtle beauty of the smaller, mixed-voice jazz ensemble. Although we’ve reduced our ensemble sizes due to pandemic safety concerns, the music thrives in this setting, providing a precious opportunity to enjoy some lesser-known high-quality Jazz. Jazz Ensembles I and II will feature music by Gerry Mulligan, Marty Paitch, Billy Strayhorn, Wil Swindler, and more.
