PULLMAN – The new WSU faculty quartet, Nighthawk, will perform a jazz concert as part of the WSU School of Music Faculty Artist Series at 8 p.m. on Friday, Oct. 22, in Kimbrough Concert Hall.
 
Nighthawk features hard driving, fiery saxophones with an emphasis on high energy improvisation.
 
The members of Nighthawk are well known to Palouse jazz fans: saxophonists Greg Yasinitsky and Dave Hagelganz, bassist Frederick “Dave” Snider and percussionist David Jarvis. Individually, these musicians have performed around the world with the top figures in jazz including Randy Brecker, Tom Harrell, David Friesen, Mal Waldron, Gabe Baltazar, Bill Watrous, Jim Pugh and Marvin Stamm.
 
The program will include the original compositions “Smoke,” “Missing You” and “Nighthawk,” composed especially for the group by Yasinitsky, as well as “Deep Space” written by Hagelganz. The group also will perform Snider’s arrangement of Charles Mingus’s “So Long Eric” and the jazz standards “All the Things You Are” by Jerome Kern and “Giant Steps” by John Coltrane.
 
General admission tickets cost $10, senior citizens 60 and older cost $5, non-WSU students cost $5 and WSU students get in free with ID. A Season Pass also is available for all eight WSU Faculty Artist Series performances. Tickets will be available in the lobby one hour before concert time.
 
All proceeds will benefit the WSU School of Music scholarship fund.
