At the Jazz Band’s “Evening of Jazz Combos” show on Friday and Saturday night, more than 35 songs were played by eight combos.
“It was a great experience getting to play in a small group and getting to know the other Jazz musicians at Harvard-Westlake,” drummer Sophia Dienstag ’17 said.
The combos ranged from four to eight members and each played three to five songs with members switching instruments frequently to suit the song selection.
“It was interesting having independence in the combo, unlike when you’re completely directed by a teacher,” Nick Sweeny ’17 said. “It was a good leadership experience for those who contributed. “
