Yale Jazz Ensemble, Thomas C. Duffy, Music Director, and Reunion Jazz Ensemble. Reunion is a group of Yale alumni who, along with late Yale Law School Professor and trumpeter Stanton Wheeler, were early members of the Yale jazz scene in the 1970s. Professor Wheeler continued to play with the YJE until his death in 2007. This year’s Reunion roster includes well-known jazz artists Bob Kolb (alto sax), Paul Lieberman (tenor sax and flute), Gary Bennett (bari sax), Steve Perrett (trumpet), Tony Lombardozzi (guitar), Jeff Fuller (bass), Paul Sullivan (piano) and Bob D’Angelo (drums).
The Yale Jazz Ensemble (YJE) is a seventeen-piece big band that performs a wide variety of music, from Yale’s Benny Goodman archive to the newest and most progressive jazz compositions. The Ensemble has performed extensively in the United States and internationally at such noted venues as New York’s Village Vanguard and Iridium jazz clubs, and London’s Ronnie Scott’s. The YJE has performed with or opened for The Mel Lewis Jazz Orchestra, the Toshiko Akiyoshi/Lew Tabackin Big Band, the World Saxophone Quartet, Jane Ira Bloom, Jimmy Owens, and Branford Marsalis. The YJE portion of the program will feature music by and with Paul Lieberman.
