Community Concert With The United States Navy Band Commodores at Monty Alexander Jazz Festival at Avalon Theatre
Recognized as the Navy’s premier jazz ensemble, the United States Navy Band Commodores have been performing the very best of big band jazz for the Navy and the nation for more than 40 years. With a repertoire spanning over 100 years of jazz history, the 18-member group features music from prominent jazz figures, including Artie Shaw, Clark Terry, and John Coltrane—who all spent at least a portion of their careers serving as musicians in America’s Navy. The group composes and arranges a lot of their music library, in addition to performing modern compositions written by its members. The ensemble is led by Senior Chief Musician William C. Mulligan.
