Senior saxophone player at Marshall University Jarohn Grandstaff performed Tuesday at the Jomie Jazz Center.
Grandstaff’s recital presented a collection of tunes in a variety of styles.
An Afro-Latin tune, “Mahjong” by Wayne Shorter started the show and was followed by songs of jazz, bebop and the waltz styles.
Grandstaff performed another original piece, “Three by Four.”
Grandstaff said “Three by Four” reminded him of something more than music.
“It reminds me of taking a walk in the park on a Sunday morning,” Grandstaff said “It even has the feel of a Christmas carol during some portions.”
Grandstaff and two of his best friends performed an original tune near the end of the show.
Grandstaff was joined by fellow musicians Gabe Muncy on trumpet, Bobby Galloway on saxophone, Colten Settle on guitar, Jordan Trent on bass, Tyler Stewart on drums and singers Josh Steinle and Justin Hesson.
