Cal Poly’s University Jazz Bands will present the annual Fall Jazz Concert.
Known to the world as America’s original art form, jazz has several subgenres which will be showcased at this concert.
Dave Becker, acting director of the jazz program, said, “Concert-goers can expect a range from the tasteful and sonically intimate small combo sound, to the powerful and robust sound of traditional big bands with vocalists.”
The concert will feature two big bands and two combos, nearly 40 student musicians from a variety of majors on campus.
Becker is serving as acting director fall quarter while its regular director, Paul Rinzler, is on sabbatical. Becker teaches jazz saxophone at Cal Poly. On Sept. 21, his sextet — the Dave Becker Central Coast All-Stars — performed at the 61st Annual Monterey Jazz Festival on the Education Stage.
