The Brigham Young University Jazz Legacy Dixieland Band with special guests The New Hot 5 will be performing Thursday, Oct. 15, at 7:30 p.m. in the Madsen Recital Hall. The concert is free.
Jazz Legacy will first perform a number of songs, including “Big Bear Stomp,” “Hello Dolly” and “Sweet Like This.” The New Hot 5 will then perform “Canal Street Blues,” “Tin Roof Blues” and “Twelfth Street Rag.” To finish up the night, both bands will combine in a “Jam Session Blowout.”
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.
The New Hot 5 was organized in the summer of 2009 by Steve Call to play at the Jazz en Vercors Festival in the French Alps. The band consists of Call on tuba and former BYU jazz students Clark Burnside on clarinet, David Kjar on soprano saxophone, Mark Ammons on trombone and Joshua Payne on banjo.
