The upcoming Jazz Night at Soho will feature swing tunes and big brass sounds, as City College jazz bands bring on the music at 7 p.m. next Monday.

“You should come see the top student bands at City College doing new material, and get to see big band jazz in an intimate setting,” said trumpet player James Watson.

Professor James Mooy directs the “Lunch Break Band,” and promises new material, and a good time.

“We have a folder this thick stuffed with tunes,” Mooy said, holding his fingers three inches apart. He added that the selections for his band are always varied.

The concert will not only feature new material, but also new soloists, along with some familiar ones.

Saxophonist Jared Yee, who led the last Soho Jazz Night with a number of solos, will be joined by John Pena on trombone, Paul Burns on alto sax, and Rob Moreno on guitar.

The “Lunch Break Band” will be performing a number of Plas Johnson tunes. Johnson is best known for his saxophone playing on the “Pink Panther” soundtrack, and will be visiting City College to play with the band in April.

Also performing will be Eric Heidner’s “Good Times Band,” and the “A” Combo, made up of some of the school’s best players.

“Food, fun, and a good time; watch fellow students perform,” said Watson.

Tickets are $8, and can be purchased at the door. Seating will be limited.
