Please welcome Noel Jewkes, "the best mainstream reedman in the Bay Area,” (SF Examiner) as the featured Jazz Week guest artist. Noel has recorded with John Hendricks, Wesla Whitfield, Mary Stallings, Paula West, Mike Greensill, Lavay Smith, Bill Bell, Mimi Fox, Graham Bruce, Bobbe Norris, Larry Dunlap, Larry Vuckovich, Pat Yankee and Jerry Hahn, as well as his own ensembles. Noel will sit in on sets by the SSU Blue Note Ensemble, Kendrick Freeman, director, and SSU Jazz Orchestra led by Doug Leibinger.

Named after the legendary recording company that brought names like Art Blakey, Horace Silver, Bobby Hutchinson and Freddie Hubbard to audiences of the 50s and 60s, the Blue Note Ensemble will dish up some hard bop to complement the Jazz Orchestra’s classic Big Band selections.

The October 14 Jazz Forum at 1 pm in GMC 1029 will feature the Noel Jewkes Quartet.
