Jazz Combo

The Jazz Combo will study and perform classic and contemporary jazz in the context of a small band. Students will focus on playing jazz arrangements with special attention to the swing feel, Latin rhythms, the components of funk/fusion, playing through song forms, and the further development of jazz repertoire and vocabulary.

Additionally, the students will be introduced to the harmonic, melodic, and rhythmic component of jazz, rock, and Latin that create the genre of funk/fusion. Students will gain experience in discussion, researching, and performing jazz and jazz/fusion styles. Emphasis will be given to stylistic integrity, as well as melodic, harmonic, and rhythmic accuracy.
