Joe Lovano, with the UA Studio Jazz Ensemble

Friday, March 1 • 8:00 PM at Crowder Hall

“After 30 albums as a leader and at least 25 years in the spotlight, it’s clear Joe Lovano is more than a dominant figure in jazz. He’s jazz’s answer to George Clooney or Jeff Bridges, a vibrant player who delivers an award-worthy performance every time out.”  The Wall Street Journal

“Andrew York’s eclectic writing and playing constitute one of the hippest styles in American classical guitar…”

“De Grassi’s solo steel-string pieces resemble orchestral overtures more than mere songs. Alex’s control and sensitivity are almost as striking as his technical expertise.”
