Tucson, Arizona--Pima Community College performing arts department is pleased to present the PCC Jazz Improv Combos in concert, under the direction of Mike Kuhn. The concert features four combos with a rhythm section, several horns and vocalists playing jazz standards from the Great American Songbook, as well as songs by John Coltrane and Miles Davis. Several pieces, including "On Broadway" by George Benson and "What's Going On" by Marvin Gaye, highlight a rhythm and blues approach.  
The PCC Jazz Combos are formed out of the weekly improvisation class. Besides this performance, several combos perform at a variety of additional venues. Each combo also has the opportunity to cut a demonstration CD recording of several music compositions at a professional recording studio.
In addition to instructing jazz ensemble and improvisation classes at PCC, Mike Kuhn plays the jazz saxophone with the Arizona Jazz Orchestra and performs in a variety of venues around the greater Tucson area.
The Jazz Improv Combo concert is open to the public. Tickets are available at the Center for the Arts box office, located on West Campus at 2202 West Anklam Road, Tucson, (just west of downtown and I-10 on St. Mary’s Road, which turns into Anklam Road ). Box office hours are Tuesday-Friday, noon-5 p.m. and one hour prior to performance.
