On Sunday November 17th, I attended a jazz event that took place at my alma mater school, California State University Long Beach at the Carpenter Performing Arts Center. It was a great way to end the week as I watched Music Director Mitch Glickman and his Symphonic Jazz Orchestra perform and play the day away alongside guest appearance Chris Brubeck, son of Dave Brubeck. The audience was captured by every night and happily entertained throughout the entire show as shown by their reactions and applause.
Extremely proud to say that I had the opportunity to interview Glickman for our KJazz88.1FM newsletter not too long ago. He is wonderful musician and human being to say the least. Glickman serves as director of Music Programs for the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA). Glickman also runs his own program called “Beyond Symphonic Jazz by Mitch Glickman” which you can find our KJazz site here. “Beyond Symphonic Jazz” is a new 2-hour show on KJazz 88.1Fm and airs every Sunday evening from 9-11pm. Check out the show on our site on kkjz.org. I thoroughly enjoyed the performance and thought you would too. Below is some footage I took during the concert. Enjoy.
