Pick of the Week: Oberlin Conservatory Faculty Jazz Septet (2/26)

Oberlin Conservatory Faculty Jazz Septet will perform a free concert at 8 p.m. Tuesday at the Finney Chapel on the Oberlin campus. The Oberlin calendar lists the following performers for the evening (who would seem to comprise a nonet, but my math can’t always be trusted):

Gary Bartz, saxophone
Sean Jones, trumpet
Jay Ashby, trombone
Robin Eubanks, trombone
Bobby Ferrazza, guitar
Dan Wall, piano
Peter Dominguez, bass
Billy Hart, drums
Paul Samuels, drums

Whatever their number, they apparently will be playing original compositions.

For those who don’t want to make the trek out to Oberlin (guess I’m betraying an East Side-centric view here) due to weather, time or fuel concerns, general laziness or a touch of anthrojazzmeloclaustrophobia (the not altogether unfounded fear of finding oneself in an enclosed space with other jazz fans), you can watch a live broadcast of the event on the Oberlin website. Not sure how often Oberlin provides such broadcasts, but it’s a nice feature!
