Musco Center Presents

GORDON GOODWIN’S BIG PHAT BAND

with Chapman University Big Band

Combining the big-band swing of the 1930s and ‘40s with contemporary music such as funk and jazz fusion, the Big Phat Band, led by pianist/saxophonist/arranger Gordon Goodwin, is a national phenomenon, a “winning combination of impeccable musicianship and pop savvy” (JazzTimes). Goodwin’s charts bubble over with melodic ingenuity and infectious rhythms.

“Rarely are big bands like Gordon Goodwin’s Big Phat Band so able to combine such a diversity of influences into such a tantalizing mix” – AllMusic.com

ARTS EDU: Chapman University’s student jazz ensembles, led by Albert Alva, will open for both the Stan Kenton Legacy Orchesta and Gordon Goodwin’s Big Phat Band – and will join both ensembles for a rousing side-by-side finale!
