A Big Band Preview With WMU's Dr. Cowan And Eddie Codrington
Charts by jazz greats Count Basie, Duke Ellington, Thad Jones, and Paquito D'Rivera all have a place on tonight's concert by the Western Michigan University Jazz Lab Band and the WMU Jazz Orchestra, but it doesn't stop there. In a conversation with Cara Lieurance, jazz studies professor Dr. Scott Cowan and graduate student/composer Eddie Codrington highlight new and original pieces by Codrington himself ("Flaskling") and another student composer, Jane Kozhevnikova ("'Cause I Ain't Sugar").
The concert is at 7:30 pm at the Dalton Center Recital Hall. Tickets are available at the door or through the Miller Auditorium box office.
