Jazz Concert to Feature Big Band, Small Combos

November 4, 2015 - 8:37 PM

GAMBIER — The Kenyon Jazz Ensemble, including some Knox County musicians, will perform as a big band and in combos Saturday, Nov. 7, with varied selections by Duke Ellington, Chick Corea, the singer from Radiohead and many others.

The group’s fall concert at 8 p.m. in Rosse Hall, 105 College Drive, is free and open to the public.

Under the direction of Professor of Music Ted Buehrer, the big band will perform what is arguably Corea’s best-known composition, “Spain.” Buehrer said two additional compositions refer to places: Ellington's "Oclupaca" from his “Latin American Suite” album and Al Jolson's 1920s standard "Avalon," which references the resort city on Catalina Island in California. He noted that "Oclupaca" is "Acapulco" spelled backward and said the ensemble will play a more contemporary arrangement of “Avalon.”

Local musicians join the group when there are not enough students to play all the parts, Buehrer said. “I enjoy working with community members to fill out the big band,” he said.

Sandwiched between the big band selections will be small combo performances of songs as wide-ranging as "Stompin' at the Savoy," a swing tune from the 1930s, to "The Eraser,” a 2006 song by Radiohead bandleader Thom Yorke.
