The David P. ’60 and Susan W. Wohlhueter Jazz Composition Contest Presents
The Ithaca College Jazz Ensemble with special guest drummer Matt Wilson
Performance includes the winning composition “Tesseract” by Javier Nero
The prize for the winning composition is made possible through the generosity of David Wohlhueter – a 1960 Ithaca College graduate and former longtime sports information director at both IC and Cornell – and his wife, Susan.
Special guest drummer Matt Wilson is one of today’s most celebrated jazz artists, universally recognized for his musical and melodic drumming style as well as for being a gifted composer, bandleader, producer, and teacher. He leads the Matt Wilson Quartet, among other ensembles, and has performed with legends of music ranging from Herbie Hancock and Wynton Marsalis to Elvis Costello and Pat Metheny. His most recent release, Honey and Salt, was given a 5-star review by Downbeat.
