The Northeast Alabama Community College Department of Music is presenting a very special concert entitled, “JAZZ + JAZZ = JAZZ", featuring the NACC Jazz Band, Encore! and very special guests, the University of Alabama Jazz Ensemble on November 6 at 6 pm.
The concert will be held in the Music Auditorium of the W. M. Beck Health and Fine Arts Building on the NACC campus. “I'm very excited about this concert,” said Jazz Band director Stacy Morris. "UA is my alma mater and I am a former member of the Jazz Ensemble. After a special appearance by Encore! our contemporary vocal ensemble, NACC's Jazz Band and UA's Jazz Ensemble will each play a short set. We will then end with BOTH BANDS playing a tune together! It's going to be a lot of fun!"
"It is always a pleasure to come perform at another institution in Alabama to share our music and inspire their students,” added Professor Christopher Kozak, Director of Jazz Studies and the UA Jazz Ensemble. “It is especially exciting as we get to play with Stacy Morris, an esteemed alumnus of the University of Alabama Jazz Studies undergraduate and graduate programs. We are looking forward to the visit!"
NACC Jazz Band alumnus John Will Martin is the current pianist for UA's Jazz Ensemble. He will play with both bands.
