Florida Tech

Florida Institute of Technology Music Artist in Residence Christian Tamburr recorded a new CD in early August at the performance studio of university radio station WFIT and will celebrate its release with a free concert at 7 p.m. Sept. 15 at Gleason Performing Arts Center.

Tamburr will play vibraphone and be joined by Japanese pianist Takana Miyamoto and New York City-based percussionist Keita Ogawa on the CD, titled, “People Talk.”

Back by popular demand, the Space Coast Symphony Jazz Orchestra will turn up the heat once again this summer with a program that will highlight the artistry of some of the greatest arrangers and composers of our time. With their primary instrument being the big band, musicians such as Sammy Nestico, Billy May, and Ernie Wilkins are among those who have made significant contributions to the evolution of the art of the big band. With music from Goodman (as in Benny) to Goodwin (as in Gordon), this concert promises to be hot from start to finish.

A member of the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame and a Grammy nominee, he is a founding member of two legendary bands, Jefferson Airplane and the still-touring Hot Tuna. Jorma Kaukonen’s repertoire goes far beyond his involvement creating psychedelic rock; he is a music legend and one of the finest singer-songwriters in music.
