UMMA Pop Up: McIntyre & Green: Jazz in the Swing Era

Using sounds from Jazz greats such as Sidney Bechet and Django Reinhardt, guitarist Erik McIntyre and trumpeter Ben Green will perform music that was canonized in the 1920's and 1930's, a golden era of Jazz music. The style, characterized by complicated rhythms, expansive song-forms, and sounds taken from Romani-esque and Dixieland tunes, combine to create a wonderful new forward movement for the genre. 

Erik McIntyre, a recent U-M Alumnus, is a Jazz guitarist based out of Flint, Michigan. Ben Green is a current senior in the School of Music, Theatre, & Dance in the Jazz Studies department.
