Drummer Justin Chesarek lends a new perspective to familiar American songwriting ranging from gospel spirituals to pop songs, plus original material by Chesarek. The band, featuring faculty bassist Marc Miller, guitarist Patrick Arthur, and vocalist Kati Stewart, will introduce the jazz element of improvisation to songs where it did not previously exist and bridge the gap between contemporary songwriting and traditional jazz. Songs to include "Friendship" (Pops Staples), "She Came In Through The Bathroom Window" (The Beatles), "Lo and Behold" (James Taylor), and more.
