Awesome quick show announcement, folks! This Friday, join the inimitable Josh Bayer as he leads a group of AU jazz aces through a bunch of rip-roaring big band tunes for our “Jazz in the Fall” semesterly jazz show!
Bayer’s band this semester are really a good group (and I could tell you, I’m the drummer!). This year we’ve really achieved a balance of lush instrumentation with brash bombast. If I do say so myself.
For this show the band will feature world-class pianist Robert Redd (and I could tell you, he played with us on Saturday!). His superchops prove to match well with the band, whether we’re playing swing, bossa, big band or funk; all will be played at this concert. Redd will also be featured in a more intimate combo-style ensemble to lead off the night (also featuring yours truly).
This awesome event will go down this Friday (11/21) at 8pm in the Abramson Recital Hall in Katzen. Tickets are $10 for the general public, $5 for students and AU community members. What a steal! Hope to see you there!
And heeeere’s the all-important facebook event, which includes a link to pre-order tickets. Make sure to click “attending!”
