Expect to hear music by Count Basie, Sammy Nestico, Bob Mintzer and more, played with the youthful enthusiasm of our fantastic WSU Jazz Ensemble.
The line-up includes:
A great arrangement of “Out of Nowhere,” arranged by Ray Brown.

From the Buddy Rich band, “Basically Blues,” by Phil Wilson.
From Tower of Power, “Down to the Nightclub,” arranged by Paul Murtha.
