USM Jazz Faculty Ensemble Presents FACULTY CONCERT SERIES, 11/15
The Faculty Jazz Ensemble (Chris Oberholtzer, trombone; Barry Saunders, saxophone; Chris Klaxton, trumpet; Taylor O'Donnell, vocalist; Gary Wittner, guitar; Jed Wilson, piano; Bronek Suchanek, bass and Les Harris Jr., drums) will perform the complete 1962, Capitol Record's Nancy Wilson/Cannonball Adderley recording. This exciting concert will feature such tunes as A Sleepin' Bee, Happy Talk, Save Your Love for Me and Never Will I Marry.
"We've wanted to do this for months, but we wanted it to be spontaneous and relaxed. So we waited till the time was right for both of us. We wanted a happy, romping sound. It would be Cannonball's quintet with me fitting in as a sort of easy-going third horn on some nice songs that haven't already been 'heard to death' on records." ~ Nancy Wilson.
Friday, November 15 at 8 p.m. Corthell Concert Hall, Gorham Campus
