The Georgia Tech Jazz Ensembles and Combos explore concert jazz works from the late 1920's through the present day, including works by such classic composers as Duke Ellington and Stan Kenton, and contemporary artists Pat Metheny and others. Guest artists and masterclasses in recent years include Roger Ingram, Joe Gransden, Mace Hibbard, Maynard Ferguson and Arturo Sandoval, among others.
The Director, Dr. Chip Crotts, strives to respond to student interest in organizing small and large ensemble opportunities each semester. Ensemble members develop skills in ensemble playing and in the art and techniques of improvisation through coaching and rehearsal. Participants record annually in studio sessions and in live concerts.
