COVID Update—

All jazz ensembles will be conducted online for Fall Quarter 2020. 

  • There will be no Big Band this Fall quarter. 
  • There will only be 2 combos this quarter. 
  • Jazz Fundamentals will be offered instead of Big band. 

Auditions—

  • Auditions for the combos will consist of unaccompanied playing of the Thelonius Monk tune “Epistrophy.” (See links to lead sheets below.)
  • Performers will need to play the melody and one chorus of an improvised solo at 120 bpm.
  • Drummers can choose to play a variety of styles (swing, latin, rock, etc.) instead of aforementioned instructions as their audition material.
  • Video submissions will be required, and are due by Friday, September 25th at 11:59 pm. Late submissions will not be accepted. Send audition videos and other questions to Otto Lee (oglee@ucdavis.edu).
