SUU Jazz BandOn Tuesday, November 15, 2016, the Jazz Ensemble from the Southern Utah University Department of Music will perform an action-packed concert of Jazz legend pieces. The concert will be held in the Sharwan Smith Center Living Room at 7:30 p.m. This Legends In The Living Room concert is free and open to the public.

Dr. Thomas Herb, Associate Professor of Music Education and Director of the Jazz Ensemble, said, "We tried some legends pieces out and we couldn't pick a few so we decided to make the entire semester legendary pieces. Since this concert is the annual living room concert, I have been calling it Legends In The Living Room. It’s just a free open air concert.”

Ethan Patrick, a senior Marketing Major from New Harmony, who plays the Alto Saxophone is excited about the piece TANK. “It's a fast-paced and high-energy piece. The song has a difficult alto solo that requires me to play in the extremely high range of the instrument.”

Patrick continued, “People have fun at this concert. We have some amazing soloists lined up as well as guest vocalists that will make the concert even more fun and entertaining. If you haven't been to a jazz concert, this is the perfect first concert to attend.”

The pieces that will be played during the concert include TANK (Theme from Cowboy Bebop), A Night In Tunisia, Take The A Train, In The Mood, April In Paris, Our Love Is Here To Stay (with vocals), It Don't Mean A Thing If It Ain't Got That Swing (with vocals), and Sing Sang Sung.
