UA Fred Fox Jazz Ensemble
The UA Fred Fox Jazz Ensemble, directed by Brice Winston, is the premiere small ensemble in the jazz program at the University of Arizona. As such, the group has routinely performed at high profile events and festivals in and around Southern Arizona. Some past concerts with internationally known artists include Ingrid Jensen, Warren Wolf, Terell Stafford, and Troy Roberts. In 2018, the group traveled to the Las Vegas Jazz Invitational in order to perform at the Las Vegas Academy of the Arts. The group played an original suite written by pianist, Spencer Clarke, which was recorded and submitted to the International Society of Jazz Arrangers and Composers. The piece won and Spencer was invited to present it at the ISJAC yearly conference. The group will be headlining the MLK day festivities with drummer Kendrick Scott at the 2022 Tucson Jazz Festival.
