An Evening of Small Jazz EnsemblesCome listen to how Williams makes jazz!

Jazz mentors from the music department each lead a group, and each group has its own distinct sound and feel. Andy Jaffe, director of jazz activities at Williams, presents a jazz combo that often includes tunes and arrangements written especially for the occasion, but not excluding the standards that underpin the style. Avery Sharpe, celebrated jazz artist who has played with such greats as McCoy Tyner and Pat Metheny, leads The Williams Jazz Sextet, a group immerses itself in jazz standards from Dizzy Gillespie and John Coltrane and beyond. Artist Associate in Trombone John Wheeler whose recording credits include many of the biggest acts in the music business today directs The Williams Jazz/Rock Ensemble, an group that fixates on the groove.
