Cal Poly Fall Jazz Concert
The Cal Poly jazz ensembles will present a young, fresh approach to one of America’s great art forms at their Fall Jazz Concert at 8 p.m. Friday, Nov. 30, in the Spanos Theatre.
Two big bands and a combo will show how jazz is being reinvigorated by the next generation, said Paul Rinzler, director of jazz studies at Cal Poly. With four trumpets, four trombones, five saxophones, and a rhythm section, the big bands produce a “wall of sound.”
The University Jazz Band I will perform a jazz version of the rock classic “Moondance,” originally recorded by Van Morrison, in addition to traditional and contemporary jazz pieces. The Univeristy Jazz Band II, as well as a jazz combo, will also perform.
Tickets to the recital are $12 for the public and $9 for senior citizens, students and Jazz Federation members. New pricing includes all Performing Arts Center fees, and event parking is now sponsored by the PAC. Tickets are sold at the Performing Arts Ticket office between noon and 6 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday. To order by phone, call SLO-4TIX (756-4849).
