The weekend after finals ASU students and area educators presented an afternoon of jazz and blues at the Craighead Forest Bandshell.

The schedule was:

2:00 pm
Jazz Recital Band
2:30 pm
Lady Day and The Prez
3:00 pm
Delta Legends
4:00 pm
Bebop Beatniks

The Jazz Recital Band included Mr. Joseph Curtis, band director at Hoxie and a great jazz trumpeter. Thanks to Joseph for sitting in when our brass players were out of town.

Lady Day and The Prez featured Whitley Newman singing Billie Holiday songs and Tyler Remagen playing the Lester Young parts.

Mr. John B. Shepherd and Hairy Larry are Delta Legends

Thanks to Spencer Rawlins for sitting in with Bebop Beatniks as our bass player was out of town. Spencer also played with the Jazz Recital Band and Lady Day and The Prez.

The Jazz Recital Band rehearsed every Friday at 1:00 pm in the ASU Bandroom. This is a student group performing student compositions and standards. It's not a class. The musicians in the Jazz Recital Band take time out of their week every Friday because they love to play. This was our second recital this term. We also played at the Brookland United Methodist Church in February.
