Trumpeter/composer, Kevin Woods, is quickly emerging as one of the most melodic and emotive voices in the Northwest. His passion for both performance and education have made him in demand as a leader and sideman as well as a composer, arranger, and clinician. Kevin is the Director of Jazz Studies at WWU, a Yamaha performing artist and clinician, and a WJMAC favorite. Tonight he will be leading a quintet featuring the great baritone saxophonist Gary Smulyan, who has not only repeatedly won both Jazz Times and Downbeat's Readers and Critics Polls, but also has six Grammys to his credit.
Lineup: Kevin Woods (trumpet), Gary Smulyan (baritone saxophone), John Hansen (piano), Michael Glynn (bass), Julian MacDonough (drums)
