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 two jazz combo groups, each with a rhythm section, several horns and a vocalist. Each group plays its own set of repertoire, drawing from jazz standards and selections from the Great American Songbook. The program includes “Perdido” by Duke Ellington, “My Little Suede Shoes” by Charlie Parker, “Take the "A" Train” by Billy Strayhorn and “Take Five” by Paul Desmond. The standards “It’s You or No One,” “It Could Happen To You,” “Green Dolphin Street” and “You’d Be So Nice To Come Home To” are also included.
The PCC Jazz Improv 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, Kuhn plays the jazz saxophone 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.
