LUBBOCK, TX -  The Texas Tech University Jazz Ensemble I will present a concert, directed by Stephen Jones, in celebration of Black History Month at 8 p.m. Feb. 19 in the Hemmle Recital Hall at the Texas Tech School of Music.

“This performance recognizes and pays homage to the wonderful and ongoing legacy left to us by the great African-American bandleaders,” Jones said. “We have chosen to honor four of those bandleaders in our performance.”

 

The ensemble also will perform works by Ernie Wilkins, James Van Heusen and Neal Hefti and will delivers these songs in the styles of the Count Basie Orchestra, Duke Ellington and his Orchestra, The Thad Jones/Mel Lewis Orchestra and the Mingus Big Band.
