Medfield welcomes guest artist Jim Snidero (saxophone) to Jazz Night, plus these fine student ensembles: Medfield High School Jazz Band and Jazz Choir, and the Blake Middle School Jazz Band 1 & 2.
Hailed as a “master musician” by Downbeat Magazine, Jim Snidero has been a highly-respected bandleader and recording artist for over a quarter century. He has recorded and/or performed with some of the most important names in the jazz, including The Mingus Big Band, Frank Wess, Eddie Palmieri, Toshiko Akiyoshi, Maria Schneider, Frank Sinatra, Tony Bennett, Sting, drum masters Steve Smith and Billy Higgins, and many others.
In addition, Snidero has been a major contributor to jazz education as both a best-selling author and educator. He is on the adjunct faculty at New School and New Jersey City University, and ran the jazz saxophone studio for the top-rated music program at Indiana University.
One additional feature of this year's Jazz Night: highlights of the MHS Jazz Band's trip to China!
