The Monday Night Jazz Series at USF continues in February with a return visit by
composer MARK TAYLOR, a Guest Faculty Artist this semester, leading the USF Jazz
Ensemble. Acclaimed trumpeter MARVIN STAMM, who like Taylor spent his
early years with the Stan Kenton Orchestra, will be featured soloist. This evening
of big band jazz takes place in the USF Concert Hall at 7:30 on February 25,
presented by the USF School of Music and the Tampa Jazz Club.
Mark Taylor had a remarkable career with the US Army Band (Pershing’s Own) and the
Army Blues, where he was Chief Arranger for 24 years. Prior to the Army, he wrote for
Stan Kenton, who recorded many of his pieces and gave him his start in
music publishing. Taylor has become one of the most highly published
jazz composers, influencing thousands of young musicians along the way. He has
recently released ‘To the Edge,’ with his Washington, D.C.-based big band.
Marvin Stamm’s roots also include Kenton, with whom he recorded five albums,
before working with Woody Herman, Frank Sinatra, and Benny Goodman,
and many years as one of the most sought-after New York studio musicians.
In addition to a busy touring schedule, Stamm maintains an active
involvement in jazz education as mentor and clinician.
Members of the USF Jazz Ensemble, the premiere jazz orchestra at USF,
look forward to welcoming you to their performance with
these two outstanding veterans of big band jazz!
