The evening progresses through three stellar combos, coached by Ted Moore, Dann Zinn, and Frank Martin, and concludes with the award-winning UC Jazz Big Band, under the direction of Steve Campos. The show features a unique set of Brazilian music performed by Ted Moore's student combo, along with a wide-ranging assortment of jazz standards from traditional to modern from the other groups.

UC Jazz Ensembles, one of three student groups within Cal Performances, is dedicated to the performance, study, and promotion of jazz at UC Berkeley. The combos cover a wide range of repertoire and styles, including jazz standards, challenging and contemporary material from composers such as Dave Liebman and Chick Corea, and the student’s own original compositions.
