Jazz Legacy and "Jazz for Cows" stars The New Hot 5 in free concert Nov. 1

The Brigham Young University School of Music presents the Jazz Legacy Dixieland Band in concert with The New Hot 5 Tuesday, Nov. 1, at 7:30 p.m. in the Madsen Recital Hall. A second performance at 9 p.m. has been added. Both events are free.

The concert is billed as “A Salute to Red Nichols,” who was a Utah native, and both bands will play tunes recorded by Nichols.

The New Hot 5 are the stars of YouTube's "Jazz for Cows" that has  had more than 1.3 million views, making The New Hot 5 the most-viewed "Dixieland" band in the history of YouTube.

Nichols was one of the biggest jazz stars of the 1920s and 1930s. His sidemen included Benny Goodman, Glenn Miller, the Dorsey Brothers and many others who became major bandleaders of the Swing Era. Nichols gave up his music career to work in the defense industry and be home for a chronically ill child in the 1940s. His life story was told in the 1959 film "The Five Pennies."

As guest performers at international jazz festivals, Jazz Legacy has earned an international reputation in quality performance. A favorite of schools, conventions and civic concerts, Jazz Legacy has also garnered a reputation for its Dixieland standards and fast-paced stage shows. The band features clarinet, trombone, trumpet, piano, banjo, drums and bass.
