Professional jazz musician Dmitri Matheny will perform with the CWU Jazz Combos in a free concert at 8 p.m. Nov. 3 in the Central Washington University Music Building Recital Hall.

Matheny was a performer in the 2014 and 2015 Jazz in the Valley festival.

“We had such a great experience with him a year ago,” said CWU director of Jazz Activities Chris Bruya in a news release. “When the opportunity arose to bring him back this year, I just had to do it.”

Matheny will play several pieces with each combo, many of which are preparing for the upcoming jazz combo concert.

“This will be a real-world experience for the students in that the only rehearsal will be a talk-through of the music,” Bruya said. “The actual playing will happen live for the first time, in front of an audience”

Matheny will have copies of his newly-released CD “Jazz Noir” available for purchase.
