A UTM Big Band performance features Swing Era charts by Duke Ellington and Count Basie, as well as a wide array contemporary compositions, Latin jazz, and funk charts. The group presents the repertoire of jazz standards, from songs by Gershwin or Rodgers and Hart, to the compositions of Charles Mingus, Thelonious Monk, and Miles Davis.
