Jazz | Eastman Jazz Lab Band 

When The Eastman Jazz Lab Band takes the stage at Kilbourn Hall Thursday night, the group will pay homage to two recently departed jazz greats: pianist Marian McPartland and saxophonist/flautist Frank Wess. The band's director, drummer Rich Thompson, played in a trio setting with McPartland many times and worked with Wess in the Count Basie Band. At the concert, the band will perform a tune to honor each of them: McPartland's composition "Ambiance" and Ernie Willkins' "Basie," which often featured Wess.

The Eastman Jazz Lab Band performs Thursday, November 21, 8 p.m. at Kilbourn Hall, 26 Gibbs St., free, esm.rochester.edu.
