The UofL Faculty Jazz Ensemble actively performs on campus, regionally and internationally. Its members have shared the stage and recording studios with jazz masters and emerging artists. The Ensemble’s repertoire features new compositions and arrangements written especially for the group by its members and other composers, as well as established literature from throughout the jazz idiom. Master class, workshops and concerts have been presented at the Jazz Educator’s Network and Kentucky Music Educator’s conferences. Argentina, Brazil, China, Colombia, Ecuador, Poland Republic of Georgia, Russia and the United Kingdom are a few of the counties where the faculty have traveled.  In addition, many of the faculty are longtime members of the Jamey Aebersold Summer Jazz Workshops. The Ensemble recently released ‘Beyond the Horizon’, a CD featuring compositions and arrangements by faculty and jazz alumni.
