The Brigham Young University School of Music will present the toe-tapping music of the Jazz Legacy Dixieland Band Thursday, Oct. 9, at 7:30 p.m. in the Madsen Recital Hall. Admission is free and the public is welcome to attend.

The concert will feature guest artist Bill Dobbins, jazz piano professor at the Eastman School of Music in Rochester, N.Y.

Directed by Steve Call, the Jazz Legacy Dixieland Band will perform “Lazy River” by American songwriter Hoagy Carmichael, “Mama’s Gone Goodbye,” an old Dixieland tune, as well as several New Orleans-style selections including “The Tin Roof Blues.”

The Jazz Legacy Dixieland Band has performed across the country at festivals and conferences. The group features David Kjar on clarinet, Stephen Tobian on saxophone, Benjamin Taylor on trumpet, Bryan Sullivan on trombone, Brady Bills on Banjo, Whitney Morris on piano, Marcus Voght on tuba and Andrew Tolman on drums.
