This week the UW jazz festival will host approximately 600 middle and high school vocalists and instrumentalists from all over Wyoming. Our Thursday evening Concert (March 26) will feature the UW Vocal Jazz Ensemble opening for grammy nominated Tierney Sutton. On Friday (March 27) Scott Turpen Quintet will kick off the concert premiering new music from their CD "Dance of the West." Dr. Lonnie Smith will join the Wyoming Jazz Ensemble. They will be performing some of Dr. Lonnie's original compositions including Play it Back from Live at Club Mozambique. I had a blast arranging Dr. Lonnie's tunes for big band. The students are playing the music well and are looking forward to working with one of the "cats" from the this great music.
