The Page Series is pleased to present a full evening of jazz and more jazz on Thursday, February 14, starting at 7:30pm in the Page Theatre at Saint Mary's University of Minnesota, Winona, Minnesota.

The Hornheads, an extraordinarily talented group of horn players, has been gathering international acclaim from artists and critics alike, since 1991. On tour with Prince and the New Power Generation from 1991-1994, the Hornheads performed for over 2 million concert goers in twenty countries. Q Magazine, London, described them as “a peerless horn section...playing in bare brilliant syncopation, punching with a staccato precision beyond the grasp of science or Synclavier. Prince splashes their insouciant versatility all over the set list.”

Performing on over sixty CD projects, the Hornheads have recorded with national and international artists such as Prince, Chaka Kahn, The Jonas Brothers, Mavis Staples, Phil Upchurch, Ricky Peterson, Jimmy Jam, Mandy Moore, Pedro Abrunhosa, Yumi Matsutoya, Babyface, Illya Kuryaki and the Valderramas, France Gal, Tevin Campbell, Rosie Gaines, Larry Graham, Sétimo Céu, Carmen Electra, Gegé Telesforo, and Ben Jor.

Opening this special evening of jazz will be John Paulson's Big Band Project.

Long time SMU jazz faculty member now out playing gigs full time, John Paulson has assembled a big band that will perform a number of his original charts. It promises to be a full length evening of jazz and more jazz.
