Under the direction of Caleb Chapman, Dave Faires, and Jennifer Madsen, the Crescent Super Band has been selected as one of the 15 finalist bands in the prestigious Essentially Ellington Competition sponsored by Jazz at Lincoln Center in New York. In May, the band will travel to New York to perform for Wynton Marsalis and other top artists who will adjudicate the finals.  This was the band’s first time entering the competition and is also the first time any Utah musicians have been invited to the finals!
