Directed by long time UCSB faculty member Dr. Jon Nathan, the UCSB Jazz Ensemble presents its first large ensemble concert of the year, “The Full Spectrum”, celebrating the full diversity of the jazz genre on Wednesday, March 14, 2018 at 7:30 p.m. in Lotte Lehmann Concert Hall on the UCSB campus. On this concert, the widest range of styles and historical periods are represented, from vocal to instrumental jazz, and from the earliest of composers of this music to very recent additions to the jazz repertoire. Students from diverse disciplines comprise the nearly 40 member UCSB Jazz Ensembles (including 4 small ensembles and central large ensemble “big band”), including Math, Biology, Bio-Psychology, Engineering, Physics, and of course Music.
Featured works come from the libraries of Edward “Duke” Ellington (Caravan, Bonga), and William “Count” Basie (I’ve Caught a Touch of Your LoveThe Blues Machine), as well as Maria Schneider’s soothing Green Piece and rambunctious Dance You Monster to My Soft Song. Other compositions/arrangements to be performed include Ray Ricker’s saxophone-centric Sound Down, Bob Brookmeyer’s expansive Tah Dum, and Chris Walden’s virtuosic arrangement of the Irving Berlin classic, People Will Say We’re in Love, originally written as a feature for Grammy Award-winning vocalist Tierney Sutton on the 2006 Chris Walden Big Band recording, NO BOUNDS.
Join us for an evening of great music and exciting performances by our UCSB Jazz musicians, a thriving community of self-motivated performing artists.
