An Evening of Combined Jazz at Dimitriou’s Jazz Alley - May 29, 2018

The Vocal Jazz Group kicked off the evening with their sultry tones, singing to a very full house, under the direction of Courtney Rowley.  Their pieces included Nature Boy (Nat King Cole) Straighten Up and Fly Right (Nat King Cole & Irving Mills), For Once in My Life (Stevie Wonder) and Same ‘Ol Story (Bernard Ighner).  Their final piece, Makes Me Feel This Way, was written by Josh Nelson for singer Sara Gazarek, a Seattle native and Roosevelt graduate, who now lives in LA as a professional jazz singer and a member of the USC faculty.


Then Jazz 2 took the stage and really shined with Purple Gazelle & Black and Tan Fantasy (Duke Ellington) under the direction of Mike Gebhart.  They featured several talented soloists and played with great energy.


Jazz 1 concluded the evening with several new songs including All Heart (Duke Ellington and Billy Strayhorn) Freckleface (Sammy Nestico,) So Easy (Tadd Dameron), Portrait of Louie Armstrong (Duke Ellington) and In a Sentimental Mood (Duke Ellington, but arranged by our own Aiden Ward-Richter).  They finished the set with a renegade encore of Night in Tunisia (Dizzy Gillespie) that elicited the patented “frown smile” from Michael James as well as cheering from the audience.

Many thanks to Jazz Alley for hosting the event in their wonderfully intimate venue, as well as the many patrons that made the event a success.
