New Director Leads U of L Jazz Ensemble

Dr. Josh Davies, a new music faculty member, directs the U of L Jazz Ensemble as it delights audiences with its new repertoire of big band jazz and showcases one of Lethbridge’s strongest jazz groups. 

Playing Dec. 1 at 8 pm in the University Theatre, Davies looks forward to performing a program of entertaining, foot-tapping jazz. “This truly eclectic concert features many different styles including the funky style of Herbie Hancock (Chameleon), groovy style of Charles Mingus, the Latin flavour of Arturo Sandoval, the masterful orchestration of Quincy Jones, and a cover by the band Chicago of the famous Duke Ellington song, Caravan. We’ll present old favorites and new compositions,” says Davies, a two-time Grammy nominated performer in his own right. “Enjoy a journey of the jazz greats and feel free to dance in your seats to the music!”
