MUSC-109 JAZZ ENSEMBLE (0.5 credit)
Kris Allen, Director, 860-297-5368 / Kristopher.Allen@trincoll.edu
Jazz is America's own art form! The Jazz Ensemble studies and performs the compositions of Ellington, Monk, Coltrane, Hancock, and others, as well as original works by Professor Allen and the group members. Styles span the gamut of jazz history, from traditional swing to fusion and jam band funk. We will work hard on improving individually and as a group, with focus on creative improvising, group interplay, and solid grooves. There are usually two performances per semester at various venues on campus.
Please email Professor Allen with any questions! Kristopher.Allen@trincoll.edu
