Gary Smulyan W/The William Paterson University Jazz Orchestra Sunday, October 29, 2023 at 4:00 PM EDT
Sunday, October 29, 2023 at 4:00 PM EDT
Baritone saxophone virtuoso Gary Smulyan is the winner of twenty-one polls and awards over the last decade, including the 2022 Down Beat Critics Poll for Baritone Saxophonist of the Year, and so many more. He is also one of the main solo voices of the Vanguard Jazz Orchestra, the Joe Lovano Sextet, and is one of the great improvisers on any instrument. This concert matches Smulyan’s powerful voice with the exciting students of the William Paterson Jazz Orchestra, in a program that will include music arranged by Bob Brookmeyer, Pete McGuinness, Rich DeRosa, Thad Jones, and the premiere of two new graduate student arrangements of compositions by Smulyan’s baritone mentor, Pepper Adams.
