Jazz Night gets 're-imagined'

Central Wyoming College's spring Jazz Night concert will feature a collection of what instructor Jason Ogg calls "jazz standards re-imagined."

The concert will be at 7:30 p.m. Thursday in the Robert A. Peck Arts Center Theatre. Admission is free.

The Time's-A-Wastin' Big Band is playing music "made famous by two of the most venerable ensembles in the history of American music: the Duke Ellington Orchestra and the Count Basie Orchestra," Ogg said.

"Rooster Parade" by Les Hooper features NettaBell Girard and Aaron Baldes, and the talents of Chad Rose and Avery Hatfield are highlighted in Ellington's "All Too Soon." Matt Machen and Jon Marquez are featured in "Ornithology" and Sydney Thayer is the standout in "April in Paris."

The instrumental jazz combo is performing student-created arrangements of well-known jazz standards. The combo is playing NettaBell Girard's arrangement of Thelonious Monk's "Blue Monk" and Misty Waters' arrangement of "Blue Bossa."
