When this Central Washington University combo made the trip from Ellensburg to the 88.5 F-M performance studio, it was a first. For us, anyway. The group is the first Eastern Washington jazz band we’ve hosted, and we hope it’s the first of many to come.
Of course, it didn’t hurt their cause when they enlisted their mentor, trumpeter Thomas Marriott, to join the festivities. Check it out—three delightful arrangements from a group of young musicians on their way up.
