Gifts of music and ... Live jazz in Rochester, December 6-12

982EB35A-3E0C-426D-B82A-8EB3EB5D4950Last Thursday, I was reminded of one of the great gifts of having the Eastman School of Music in town. Once in a while a great jazz artist comes to town to work with Eastman's jazz students and, sometimes, these visitors also team up with the best of Eastman's jazz faculty and/or students for a great night of jazz available to the public. Last Thursday was one of those times. Danilo Peréz teamed up with the Eastman Jazz Ensemble, directed by Bill Dobbins, to reprise a concert that Peréz and Dobbins presented with the WDR Big Band in Europe a few years back, before a full house in Kilbourn Hall.  Teamed up with the best of ESM's jazz students with arrangements by Dobbins, it was a great night of music.  And it was free to boot!
