Ultimate Jazz All-Stars Big Band directed by Gregg Field

Eight-time Grammy Award-winner and Latin Grammy Producer of the year, Gregg Field, is assembling a one-night-only big band in honor of his former teacher and mentor, UMSL’s Director of Jazz Studies, Jim Widner. Widner’s retirement plans mean the 2018 Jazz Festival will be his last, and Field and musicians such as Tom Scott, Scotty Barnhart, Gordon Goodwin, Eric Marienthal, Carlitos del Puerto, Shelly Berg and others are planning an all-star blowout celebration.

The Ultimate Jazz All-Stars Band promises an incomparable night of music in a sendoff to one of the most beloved jazz educators and musicians. Come enjoy the music – this tribute is once in a lifetime.
