Modern Big Band Jazz

Not your father's Big Band Music. The tracks we will listen to are modern arrangements for large ensembles. Dig the opening number from Gerald Wilson, with a swinging arrangement of Miles' So What. Also featured are arrangements from University of Connecticut's jazz program Earl MacDonald and a beautiful tune from Christine Jensen's Jazz Orchestra. We finish off the show with a different sound from none other than Frank Zappa.
