Cal Poly’s University Jazz Bands will present their annual Jazz Night Concert at 8 p.m. Friday, June 2, in Spanos Theatre on the Cal Poly campus.

The concert will feature works from several jazz composers who are pushing the boundaries of what jazz is and can be.

The University Jazz Band I will perform two works by Grammy award winning composer Jim McNeeley, who has composed for and led several prominent U.S. and European big bands. McNeeley’s “Finally” is a fascinating, asymmetric, post-bop composition and “Absolution” is a haunting, ethereal work. Several jazz bands soloists will have the chance to offer their take on McNeeley’s themes through their improvisations.

The University Jazz Band II will perform “Nightfall” by Adam Theis, the leader of the Jazz Mafia collective of jazz bands. Based in San Francisco, Theis is one of a younger generation of jazz composers and performers who are bringing rap and hip-hop into the contemporary big band.

Also featured will be a humorous composition by Cal Poly’s Director of Jazz Studies Paul Rinzler that strings together a series of cliche endings, titled “One More Time.”

Tickets are $14 for the public and $9 for students. Event parking is sponsored by the Performing Arts Center. Tickets are sold at the Cal Poly Ticket Office between noon and 6 p.m. Monday through Saturday. To order by phone, call 805-SLO-4TIX (805-756-4849).

The concert is sponsored by Cal Poly’s Music Department and College of Liberal Arts. For more information, call the Music Department at 805-756-2406.
