CCM’s Spring 2018 Jazz Series begins this Sunday, Jan. 28 and continues through April 22, featuring works by jazz greats Benny Goodman, Thad Jones, Miles Davis and more, along with new pieces by students and alumni!

The concert series opens at 4 p.m. on Sunday, Jan. 28 with the CCM Jazz Orchestra and Jazz Lab Band, under the direction of CCM jazz faculty member Steve Allee. The program features exciting new compositions from CCM Jazz Studies composers and pioneering masters.

Later in the semester, Allee directs the CCM Jazz Orchestra in a special concert dedicated to the music of the “King of Swing” Benny Goodman on Sunday, March 4. One of the true giants of jazz, Goodman’s enormous popularity in the mid-1930s helped establish the big band sound firmly in the popular consciousness of America. The concert welcomes Grammy Award-winning jazz artist Loren Schoenberg as guest conductor.

On Sunday, April 8, the CCM Concert Orchestra joins CCM Jazz to celebrate the legacy of American jazz trumpeter, composer and bandleader Thad Jones. The jazz master’s career took off in the 1930s at Blue Note Records in Detroit. He went on to solo with the acclaimed Count Basie Orchestra and performed regularly at the famed Village Vanguard jazz club in New York.

CCM jazz faculty member Craig Bailey directs the CCM Jazz Lab Band in the closing concert on Sunday, April 22 with Trumpets All Out. Program highlights include the music of Tom Harrell, Miles Davis, Freddie Hubbard, Nat Adderley, Randy Brecker, Don Ellis and other trumpet masters of yesterday and today.

CCM Jazz presents an exciting lineup of free and ticketed concerts in its Spring 2018 Concert Series. View the complete performance listing below!
