CIJS House Band at 6:00 p.m.

Guest Group: Illinois Central Jazz Train at 7:15 p.m.

The Jazz Train is excited about the November 17 concert for CIJS. We have loaded the show with Standards at every turn. Stormy Weather, Smoke Gets In Your Eyes, I’m Getting Sentimental Over You, Besame Mucho, Them There Eyes, Take Me Out to the Ball Game, Salt Peanuts, and Take the ”A” Train will all be performed. We will also present an entertaining seven-movement work by Les Hooper entitled, A Short History of Jazz, which only takes about four minutes to play. Some of the performers who will be prominently featured on this program are Toby Thomas (alto sax), Dale Rideout (trumpet), Billy Cook (guitar), Doug Wilcox (trombone), Bridget Bourke (alto sax), Nathan See (tenor sax), Myles Singleton (trumpet), and Jeremy Clarke (drums). Thank you for inviting us to play for you.
