Free Jazz Combo Night at BYU March 22

Everyone is welcome to attend Brigham Young University’s free Jazz Combo Night, an evening featuring performances by several of BYU’s small jazz groups, Tuesday, March 22, at 7:30 p.m. in the Madsen Recital Hall.

Five combo groups will be performing two tunes each for this program. Each group is comprised of students from the School of Music.

Program selections include “One Note Samba” by Antonio Carlos Jobim and “Smooth” by student and combo member Ammon Doman. The standard tune “Body and Soul” and “I and Affirmation” by Jose Feliciano will follow, with Chick Corea’s “Windows” and student Trevor Dixon’s “Song I Wrote” to be played afterward. An original tune by student Aaron McMurray will round out the evening.

Ray Smith, coordinator of student jazz combos at BYU, said, “The Combo Night is high energy, spontaneous creativity and a very enjoyable night — a great break from the books for a little while.”

For more information about Jazz Combo Night, contact Ray Smith at (801) 422-3391 or ray_smith@byu.edu. To learn more about the jazz programs at BYU, visit music.byu.edu/index.php?id=289.
