The UT Martin Jazz band is made up of talented UTM students who share a love of jazz music. Both the UTM Big Band and Small Jazz Group are under the direction of Dr. Kurt Gorman, Professor of Music, Trumpet. The intent of all UTM jazz ensembles is to provide quality rehearsals weekly that foster interest in jazz performance, and to be a resource for jazz education at UTM. Each year, the jazz ensembles at UTM grow stronger with an increasing ability to perform more challenging arrangements.
The UT Martin Jazz ensembles regularly perform in various live settings. Be on the lookout for Jazz performances on the UTM Music events calendar!
