Jazz X-Press Concert on Oct. 27 to Feature Trumpet Great Bobby Shew
World-renowned trumpet player Bobby Shew has performed in the big band groups of Benny Goodman, Buddy Rich and Tommy Dorsey, among others. He has also backed up a who's who of pop stars, including Elvis — yes that "Elvis." His solo CD work has garnered a Grammy nomination and also a Jazz Album of The Year award. He has also played on soundtracks of major motion pictures, including "Grease" (I and II), and "Rocky" (I and II).
Rarely does a trumpet player of this magnitude make it to Chico. His performance with the Jazz X-Press on October 27 at 7:30 p.m. in Harlen Adams Theatre will be a "must see," according to Rocky Winslow, Director of Jazz Studies at CSU, Chico.
"Having Bobby here will be like having Yoda on campus -- he will leave an everlasting, thought-provoking impression on our students and all else who take advantage of his performance, master classes and workshops."
Tickets for the concert, at $15 adults, $13 seniors, and $6 students/children, are available at the University Box Office (x6333).
