GT Jazz Ensembles in Concert with Special Guest, Melvin Jones

Featuring Grammy award winning trumpeter and composer, Melvin Jones, the Georgia Tech Jazz Ensembles present their final fall concert. The Georgia Tech Jazz Program, under the direction of Dr. Chip Crotts, explores music from the late 1920s through the present day, including works by composers such as Duke Ellington, Bill Holman, Sammy Nestico, Charles Mingus, and Pat Metheny. Emphasis in these groups is focused on ensemble playing and the art of improvisation, an essential element in jazz tradition.
