UCF JAZZ ENSEMBLE

Jazz Town

2011-04-24

The UCF Jazz Ensemble is composed mainly of freshmen and sophomores in the jazz studies program at University of Central Florida. This is big band jazz with absorbing arrangements of classics such as Billy Strayhorn’s “Lush Life”. Interesting choices in covers include James Brown’s “It’s a Man’s World” and the 70’s hit “Me and Mrs. Jones”, each arrangement is complete with vocals and leans toward R&B. Both “Bad Moon” and the title track are the album highlights. These two original songs are upbeat and engaging. Rebecca Ruth
