Jazz Concert Preview
by Amanda Beaudoin on Friday, October 5th, 2012
Next Friday, October 12th, the Milton Jazz program, under the direction of Bob Sinicrope, will perform its annual fall Jazz Concert in King Theatre. After losing many talented seniors from the class of 2012, the jazz program veterans have stepped up to the plate. MA jazz is back in full force ready to share with the community its passion for inventive styles of music. Twenty-six jazz students will perform a collection of upbeat and energetic Afro-Cuban songs. The jazz musicians hope their authentic rhythms will inspire the crowd to dance. These songs include Tito Puente’s Oye Como Va, made famous by Santana, and the quintessential jazz standard, Caravan, as arranged by McCoy Tyner. Some lesser known songs that also capture the essence of the Afro Cuban style include Yumbambe, Armando´s Rhumba, and Fiesta a la King. In past years, the fall jazz concert has honored the work of a particular musician such as Art Blakey, Cannonball Adderley, and Duke Ellington. This year’s theme though features a whole new style of music filled with intricate melodies and a myriad of rhythms that are sure to produce an exciting evening of energetic music, dancing, singing, and cultural exploration.
