JAZZ | Eastman Jazz Ensemble with Dave Glasser 

A concert featuring Bill Dobbins conducting the Eastman Jazz Ensemble in a celebration of the centenary of Billy Strayhorn would be promising enough. After all, Eastman School of Music Professor Dobbins is a leading scholar of the music Strayhorn wrote and arranged for the Duke Ellington Orchestra, and the jazz ensemble is a first-rate band. But it gets better: The group will be joined by Dave Glasser on alto saxophone. Glasser — who graduated from Eastman and went on to perform with Dizzy Gillespie, Sarah Vaughan, and Clark Terry — has a gorgeous tone reminiscent of Paul Desmond and Stan Getz.

Eastman Jazz Ensemble with Dave Glasser performs Monday, February 9, at Kilbourn Hall, Eastman School of Music, 26 Gibbs Street. 8 p.m. Free. 274-1100;
