Jazz Band I is the premiere jazz ensembles at CWU, this group focuses on performance of literature written for the big band from the 1940's to the present, with emphasis on the great arrangers and writers such as Bill Holman, Frank Foster, John Clayton, Thad Jones, Don Sebesky, Bob Florence, Mike Crotty, Oliver Nelson, Maria Schneider, Jim McNeely, Bob Mintzer, Sammy Nestico, and others. Performance standards are high, and as a consequence, entrance to the band is very competitive. There are frequently a few graduate students and many upper classpersons throughout the group. Creativity, interpretation and intense musical experience are the hallmarks of this fine ensemble.
