Jazz album cover

The NKU SOTA Jazz Studies area is happy to announce the release of an album. These recordings were a vehicle for the students to learn about remote recording, which is used ever more in modern-day music production. Each student was responsible for perfecting their part and recording it so that those parts could be compiled into the performances you hear. We also took the opportunity to feature some of our jazz faculty alongside the students.
