Etowah Jazz Society Big Band Releases "What Jazz is This"


Sign in to view read count
What Jazz is This is the second CD released by the Etowah Jazz Society Big Band. The first CD, Headwaters, was a “live" recording where What Jazz is This was recorded in a studio and showcases tunes that the band performed during their Christmas concerts over the previous holiday seasons. “We picked our favorite tunes from our 'book' and present them to you," says bandleader Saunders Jones, Jr.

The Etowah Jazz Society Big Band was formed in April of 2002 as a not for profit organization working big band by a group of dedicated Etowah area musicians who love to perform a wide variety of music that can be performed by a big band.

The EJS Big Band plays all around North Georgia for various occasions. As a 501(c)3 we benefit the local music programs and provide college scholarships, tuition, and music funds for the local high schools and other organizations. EJS is comprised of some 17 players from all walks of life who live in the local and surrounding communities. This effort is a compilation of months of studio work (Christmas tunes in JULY!) and individual and sectional recordings compiled to bring you “Seasons Greetings" from this great group. We hope you enjoy our musical offerings in this season of JOY.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
