The program will consist of arrangements by masters and doctoral students from Eastman’s Jazz Studies and Contemporary Media department of music by Chick Corea, Clare Fischer, Miles Davis, Stevie Wonder, Richard Rodgers, and Guy Wood, representing influential and often recorded repertoire from the American songbook and the jazz repertoire. The program will also include the world premiere of a new composition by DMA/JCM trombonist Andrew Watkins. In addition to the live repertoire, selections by the Eastman Studio Orchestra from the late 1970s, with Rayburn Wright conducting, will be screened.
