Event Description

NEW HAVEN, CT – Yale Law School and Yale University Bands will present the 2015 Stan Wheeler Memorial Jazz Concert featuring the Yale Jazz Ensemble, Thomas C. Duffy, Music Director, and the Reunion Jazz Ensemble. Admission is free and no tickets are required. Call (203) 432-4111 or visit www.yale.edu/yaleband for more information.

 

The YJE portion of the program will feature Duke Ellington and Billy Strayhorn’s arrangement of Grieg’s Peer Gynt Suite and Buddy Rich’s arrangement of Bernstein’s West Side Story.

 

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 is the 8th annual concert dedicated to his memory.

 

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.
