Once again the University Jazz Ensemble joins forces with the Vosbein Magee Big Band for an evening of exciting large-ensemble jazz. The UJE draws its repertoire from all eras of jazz's vivid history, from early New Orleans style to cutting-edge new compositions. They swing hard and they rock solid as the band showcases the talented individuals and their precise ensemble playing.
A professional big band in residence at W&L, the Vosbein Magee Big Band features the area's best jazz musicians playing music that you can't hear anywhere else.
Composer/Arranger Terry Vosbein and Trumpeter Chris Magee had been collaborating for many years when, in the summer of 2015, they formed VMBB. Four years later the band released their first CD, Come and Get It!
A highlight of this annual event features senior members of the UJE taking the stage with the seasoned pros for a rousing jam.
