WSU alum featured in Jazziz magazine

PULLMAN – Saxophonist and WSU alumnus Adam Donohue is featured in Jazziz magazine, one of the top jazz publications in
the world.

A recording of Donohue’s composition “Ofuscato” as performed by the award winning WSU Jazz Big Band is included on a CD distributed internationally in the recent “Education” issue of Jazziz.

The CD also features recordings by musicians from the Juilliard School, New England Conservatory, Oberlin Conservatory, Manhattan School of Music, Western Michigan University and other top Jazz Studies programs across the country.

Additionally, the magazine lists WSU in its 2007 Jazz Education Guide as “one of the best educational institutions for jazz.”

“Adam is a terrific musician and it is wonderful to see him receive this well-deserved, international recognition,” WSU Coordinator of Jazz Studies, Greg Yasinitsky, said. “This is the fifth year in a row that WSU students have been featured in Jazziz and it is gratifying to see our School of Music honored in this way.”

Donohue completed his master’s in music with an emphasis in jazz last December. During his time at WSU he studied composition with Yasinitsky and Charles Argersinger, and saxophone with Yasinitsky and Horace-Alexander Young. He was also regularly featured in the WSU Jazz Big Band under Yasinitsky’s direction.
