UDel Jazz Ensemble w/ guest soloist Gerald Chavis

The University of Delaware Jazz Ensemble, under the direction of Professor Tom Palmer, and with guest soloist trumpeter, Gerald Chavis, brings the energy and excitement of big band jazz to The Mainstay in Rock Hall, Maryland on Sunday, April 19, 2020 at 4:00 p.m. Co-hosted with Sumner Hall in Chestertown, this is a free community event with donations suggested at the door.  No reservations are necessary.

The award-winning University of Delaware Jazz Ensembles have been around for nearly 50 years.  The 18-20 members include graduate and undergraduate students, music majors as well as musicians studying other disciplines.  True to the genre, the ensemble includes saxophone, trombone, trumpet and rhythm sections.   The Jazz Ensemble’s repertoire is steeped in the sounds of the big bands such as Count Basie and Buddy Rich and will feature a number of big band favorites and standards from the Great American Songbook.  For this special concert, trumpeter Gerald Chavis will dazzle the audience with his up-tempo sound.

Chavis has appeared as a sideman and bandleader for more than 40 years.  He currently performs with his own ensemble as well as with Philadelphia-based society dance orchestras, and many church organizations in the Wilmington-Philadelphia area.  He has performed with such national acts as Mick Jagger, Phyllis Hyma, Dr. Donald Byrd, The Temptations, The Dells, and the Spinners.
