CSU Jazz Ensemble I is joined by the great Paul Hanson, a one-of-a-kind bassoonist and world traveler who exemplifies creativity and daring. “Over the last 20 years, Paul has rewritten the rulebook and set new standards for what is possible on this most classical of woodwind instruments,” notes CSU Director of Jazz Studies Peter Sommer. This concert features Mr. Hanson on arrangements of his own compositions, as well as selections from modern big band literature. The concert also features Jazz Ensemble II and new music from CSU jazz composer Wil Swindler.
