(S/BAD) production will be at 8 p.m., Dec. 11-14 in Solano Hall
Directed by Linda Goodrich, professor of theatre and dance, "Classic
Jazz" will present modern African movements set to traditional
and contemporary jazz tunes. The choreography pays tribute to the
era when singers sang the blues, while it also honors today's range
of jazz styles from the smooth rhythms of John Coltrane to the jazz
funk and African drumming of Babatumbe Nfumbe.
