With an international reputation and the sensational sound to back it up, the Jazz Ensemble from Abraham Baldwin Agricultural College will perform at 7 p.m. on Feb. 28 in the Kirbo Center Auditorium on the ABAC Bainbridge campus.

Dr. Scott Phillips, who directs the Jazz Ensemble, said the Stallion Jazz Combo will also perform at the event, which is a part of the Carter Arts and Lecture Series.  Open to the public at no charge, the series is supported in part by the generosity of the Kirbo Foundation.

The Stallion Jazz Combo will open the evening with Miles Davis’ “So What” followed by John Coltrane’s “Untitled Original 1 1 386.”   The Jazz Ensemble, which has performed all over the world, will then take the stage with “Red Romper Blues,” “There’s the Rub,” “Basie’s Blues in C,” “Orilla Del Mar,” “I’ll Be Seeing You,” and “(It’s Just) Talk.”
