GENESEO, N.Y. – Geneseo’s Monday Night Jazz Ensemble, under the direction of Department of Music faculty member David Gibson, will feature a variety of jazz arrangements from well-known composers during its concert Dec. 2 at 8 p.m. in Wadsworth Auditorium. The Monday Night Jazz Combo also will perform. The event is free and open to the public

The ensemble performance will include “A Tribute to Someone” by Herbie Hancock and “On the Rise” by Freddie Hendrix.  These groups evoke the spirit of Count Basie and Duke Ellington, even as they move through the breadth of jazz history into the present.

Also on the program are original arrangements by Gibson. Featured in the performance will be 2007 SUNY Geneseo alumnus and faculty member Mark Collins. The group also will perform music by Bob Mintzer, Thad Jones and Bill Holman.

The jazz combo will feature original compositions and jazz standards.
