UNC Summer Jazz Workshop 

When: June 15-19 2015
UNC becomes a jazz hotbed for five days every summer as the annual Summer Jazz Workshop offers a heavy curriculum of history, theory and instruction for students running from middle school through college and beyond. The intensity of each day’s instruction boils over every night in free public performances. Monday night, the 360o Jazz Initiative opens the week by celebrating its new Distracted Society with a show on the Wilson Library lawn. Tuesday features the Scott Sawyer/Dave Finucane Quartet at the Kenan Music Building; the guitarist and saxophonist link with singer Kate McGarry. On Wednesday night, trumpeter Jim Ketch, sax player Gregg Gelb and trombonist Jerald Shynette lead an ensemble at the Kenan Building, where the Dominican Jazz Project (featuring Guillo Carias on melodica) preview their forthcoming album on Thursday. But Friday afternoon is the real gem, as student combos formed throughout the week play in the Kenan Building from 4:30–7:15 p.m. —Chris Vitiello
