Nov. 15, 1995

by Richard Veit

Two jazz combos from the School of Music at Baylor University will present a joint concert at 5 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 19, in Meadows Recital Hall. The performance will be supervised by Vern Sielert, director of jazz studies.

Combo 1 will feature Sielert himself on trumpet, as well as Heath Jones (tenor saxophone), Steve Longoria (alto saxophone), Matt Walker (trombone), Bill Cherry (piano), Daniel Fredericks (bass), and Scott Amman (drums). They will play a jazz treatment of the familiar "Falling in Love with Love" by Richard Rodgers, "Corcavado" by Antonio Carlos Jobim, an unusual arrangement of "Three Blind Mice," and two pieces by tenor sax virtuoso John Coltrane-his "Naima" and "Moment's Notice."

Combo 2 will offer "All Blues" by jazz great Miles Davis, "Summertime" from George Gershwin's opera "Porgy and Bess," Jamey Aebersold's "Shuffle Blues," and one of Richard Rodgers's most enduring ballads, "My Funny Valentine." The combo is comprised of Andy Ochs (trumpet), Gene Willet (alto saxophone), Eddie Hold (clarinet), Tim Wall (piano), J. D. Salas (bass), and Jeremy Brown (drums).

The concert is free and open to the public. For more information, call the Baylor School of Music at 755-3991.
