LISTEN TO KUTZTOWN UNIVERSITY JAZZ I AND ROCK I
In these crazy times, KU Department of Music Jazz Studies program thought you might like a little music, recorded right here on campus (last academic year) by our own KU music students. It's our intention to post a new recording twice a week in the Daily Brief. One rock and one jazz. If there is a certain kind of tune or style you'd like, we'll do our best to come close. To kick it off, here's KU Rock Ensemble I doing a Taj Mahal tune that was covered by the Blues Brothers. We stole the Blues Brothers arrangement and added some background vocals.
