Left Bank Big Band Concert
The USC School of Music presents the Left Bank Big Band, April 6th at 7:30 PM, in the Johnson Performance Hall at the Darla Moore School of Business. The program features music of Quincy Jones, Thad Jones, Duke Ellington and more, with music faculty members Aletha Jacobs and composer/pianist David Cutler. As a professional musician for 40 years, Aletha Jacobs has shared a stage with John Pizzarelli, The Shirelles, The Drifters and Freddy Cole. David Cutler, associate professor of music entrepreneurship, is a multi-dimensional composer who listens voraciously to a colossal range of musical styles, and his eclectic output reflects this musical world, with a vocabulary ranging from beautiful lyricism to unusual sounds, dissonant clashes, and bizarre juxtapositions.
