Frost Jazz Sextet, directed by Chuck Bergeron, opens the program. Frost Concert Jazz Band, directed by John Daversa, premieres Justin Morell’s new work, Guitar Concerto for Jazz Orchestra, featuring New York jazz guitar virtuoso, Adam Rogers. “In terms of melodic and rhythmic clarity, Rogers has few peers on the instrument, but his staggering technique is matched by musical sensitivity and a finely honed rapport with his quintet.” David R. Adler, Jazz Times.
