WILMORE, KY—The Rhythm & Brass artist series concert for Feb. 22 at 7:30 p.m. is canceled. The College will reschedule Rhythm & Brass for the fall semester.
Rhythm & Brass has performed at the Carnegie Recital Hall, Chicago’s Mid-West International Band and Orchestra Clinic, the New York Brass Conference, and Kentucky’s Great American Brass Band Festival. Rhythm & Brass was featured on “BET on Jazz,” performing several tribute pieces to Duke Ellington.
Entertainment Weekly described Rhythm & Brass’ recording More Money Jungle … Ellington Explorations, released in 1998, as, “Smart and deliciously off-centered.” The New York Times listed the album as “Album of the Week” (May 7, 1999).
