The UC Davis Jazz Ensembles will give their spring quarter concert at 7 p.m. Wednesday, May 21, in the Vanderhoef Studio Theatre at the Mondavi Center.

“The concert should be a lot of fun,” said director and instructor Sam Griffith. “The concert will be composed of two big bands made up of UC Davis students (and a few community members). I’ve been fortunate to have a tremendous turnout of student participants since I took over directing duties for the jazz ensembles. We will be playing a variety of material ranging from pieces written during the swing era to several modern pieces.”

On the first half of the concert, the Blue Band will perform “Groovin’ Hard” by Don Menza (born in 1936) and “Corner Pocket” by Freddie Green (1911-87). After intermission, the Gold Band will perform “Shade of the Cedar Tree” by Christian McBride (born in 1972), “When You’re Smiling” in an arrangement by Tom Kubin (born in 1951) and “Count Bubba’s Revenge” by Gordon Goodwin (born in 1954).

Local audiences may recall visits to the Mondavi Center in 2002 and 2012 by McBride, a jazz bassist and band leader.

Tickets are $12 general, $8 for students and seniors, available at www.mondaviarts.org or 530-754-2787.
