The Wesleyan University Jazz Ensemble, directed by Noah Baerman, offers a program of modern, small-group jazz, recorded remotely after a semester of in person rehearsals in fall 2020. Selections include a standard ballad, one composition each by jazz giants Freddie Hubbard, Kenny Barron, and Eddie Harris, a Christmas favorite, and three tunes by the great saxophonist Sonny Rollins, who celebrated his 90th birthday during the fall semester. Featuring Noah Lilienthal '22 on tenor saxophone, Elijah Baldwin '24 on trombone, Max Shatan '22 on guitar, and keyboardists Hudson Christie '23 and Jack Canavan-Gosselin '22.

This program will be available to stream from WESU's show archives for two weeks following the broadcast.
