​CMU Faculty Jazz Ensemble

The Central Michigan University jazz faculty continues to perform the music of Rob Smith, Director of Jazz Studies. Compositions with titles such as Twitter This and Invasive Procedure reflect the originality of a performer/composer that many consider to be a musician’s musician. Rob is also an amateur archaeologist and historian, hence the Mayan influenced 13th Baktun, which is in 13/8 time. Rob challenges us, and his idea of fun is to perform Unforgettable in 7/4!
