July Performances
 

BRASS IN THE COURTYARD
by the Burton Brass Quintet
You name it: jazz, classical, show tunes, ragtime, The Burton Brass Quintet does it all. With Benjamin Albright and Jana Galloway on trumpet, Matt Shevrin on horn, Brooks Barnes on trombone, and Gary Supplee on tuba, this all brass quintet brings professional experience and top-notch training from the U-M School of Music to a variety of musical styles. Their repertoire ranges from fugues by Bach to Debussy Preludes, from the light jazz of Fats Waller to show tunes by Richard Rodgers. You might even hear an arrangement by Gilbert and Sullivan or a medley of favorites from the 1890's or 1920's.

MELODIC JAZZ FUNK
by JQube

JQube is a powerful instrumental trio which creatively fuses funk, rock and jazz to create a sound all of its own. It was certainly a match made in groove heaven when Ann Arbor based jazz guitar virtuoso Jake Reichbart linked up with two of the most in demand rhythm players around, drummer Dan Eichinger and bassist Jacob Chmara from the now disbanded group, Smokestack. What started out as unique interpretations of jazz standards and pop hits soon blossomed into a sound that combines hard-hitting funk with a very concentrated melodic approach. JQube now boasts a large repertoire of original tunes but still has been known to offer their own take on popular songs by anyone from Jimi Hendrix or the Police to the Pet Shop Boys.

JAZZ STANDARDS
by Trio Indigo

Trio Indigo combines the talents of three veteran Michigan-born musicians who have performed in the area for many years. With an enduring affection and respect for the classic jazz literature, Eric Nyhuis, Andy Sacks and Jerry Brabenec play tunes ranging from Duke Ellington's popular American songs of the forties, to Ray Charles' romping renditions of 32-bar standards, to Chick Corea's Moorish influenced rhumbas.
