8/16: Cleveland Jazz Orchestra in Hudson

Posted By on Fri, Aug 14, 2009 at 8:00 AM

The Cleveland Jazz Orchestra is currently between directors, since its former leader, trumpeter Jack Schantz, stepped down. Incoming director Sean Jones — a trumpeter from Warren who teaches jazz at Pittsburgh’s Duquesne University when he’s not performing with Wynton Marsalis and the Lincoln Center Jazz Orchestra — hasn’t taken over yet. So another trumpet player, David Banks, will take over at the group’s outdoor concert tonight. Banks made a career in Las Vegas for more than 20 years before returning to Ohio, where he now teaches at Walsh Jesuit High School. In addition to his gig with the CJO, he performs with the Jazz Unit and Ernie Krivda’s Fat Tuesday Big Band and leads the Dave Banks Big Band. The Cleveland Jazz Orchestra performs at 6 p.m. at the Gazebo in Hudson (routes 91 and 303 in Hudson, 216.521.2540). It’s free. — Michael Gill
