FSU Presents Concert by Jazz Band and Vocal Jazz Ensemble

The Frostburg State University Department of Music will present a concert by the FSU Jazz Band and the Vocal Jazz Ensemble on Thursday, April 28, at 8 p.m. in the Pealer Recital Hall of FSU’s Performing Arts Center. This performance is free and open to the public.

The 17-member jazz band, under the direction of Timothy Powell, has worked up numerous pieces from which the program will be selected: Dizzy Gillespie’s Afro-Cuban work “Manteca”; Joe Garland’s chart-topping “In the Mood,” popularized by Glenn Miller; Evan Berg’s “Hot it Up”; Tony Guerrero’s “The Buckethead Shuffle,” which combines jazz and Latin pop rhythms; A.R. Jones’ mellow “Easy Street”; Paul McKee’s “That’s What I Thought”; the big band, swing-tunes “Get Up and Go” by Sammy Nestico and “Changing Times” by Lennie Niehaus; and Kevin McElrath’s soulful “Blues for Bubber,” which features some “low-down” trumpet playing.

The Vocal Jazz Ensemble, under the direction of Dr. Karen Soderberg, will perform Ed Lojeski’s arrangement of “Java Jive,” which grooves with infectious style; “Words” by Anders Edenroth; “Telephone Song,” arranged by Rosana Eckert, whose well-written vocals complement a fun rhythm section; and the sweet and simple “Lullabye (Goodnight, My Angel)” by Billy Joel, arranged by Philip Lawson.
