Guest artists will bring new influences to UW-Green Bay Jazz Fest
GREEN BAY-International guest artists and an introduction to music of an influential but not well-known American jazz pianist by another guest artist are highlights of Jazz Fest at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 21 in the Weidner Center for the Performing Arts at the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay, 2420 Nicolet Dr.
UW-Green Bay director of jazz studies John Salerno will direct the Jazz Ensemble and Chris Salerno will direct the Vocal Jazz Ensemble in UW-Green Bay's 36th annual Jazz Fest.
The trio Nothing But Swing will travel to Green Bay from Slovakia to participate. Their appearance marks the first time an international group has appeared at Jazz Fest.
Trombonist, composer and arranger NathanTanouye will be the guest artist when the UW-Green Bay Jazz Ensemble introduces compositions by jazz pianist and composer Russ Freeman who died in 2002 at age 76. Tanouye is collaborating with Freeman's widow, Carolyn, to arrange and record Freeman's music for big band.
Nothing But Swing members Claudius Kovác, piano; Robert Ragan, bass; and Peter Solárik, drums, say the name of their group doesn't mean that they're stuck in one style. "Swing to us is the very essence of jazz, but our name does not mean that we play nothing but swing," say the three, but they note, "To us, swing is still alive and full of unfailing vigor."
The trio has appeared at concerts and festivals in Poland, Austria, Canada, Sweden, Denmark, Hungary, Italy and the Czech Republic. They've also recorded. This will be their first trip to the U.S. The three will spend about a week in Green Bay.
The Salernos and guitarist Bob Balsley met and played with members of Nothing But Swing when the Green Bay musicians traveled to Slovakia in October 2004 to participate in a Festival of the Arts and teach at the Academy of the Arts in Banská Bystrica.
Among those helping to support Nothing But Swing's trip to UW-Green Bay are the Office of International Education, Music Educators National Conference student chapter, Student Jazz Society, the Office of Student Life, and the American Intercultural Center.
John Salerno, who recalls his father listening to recordings on which Russ Freeman performed, describes Freeman as "a cool school guy," adding that the opportunity to feature his music makes this concert an important one for the Jazz Ensemble. Freeman's "Maid in Mexico" and "Russ Job" are on the program.
Beginning in the 1940s and continuing for a good 40 years, Freeman played with a "who's who" of jazz musicians. He began his musical career studying classical piano and switched to bebop. At age 21, he was accompanying Charlie Parker. Freeman's compositions were recorded by musicians including trumpeter Chet Baker, singer Carmen McRae and pianist Keith Jarrett. An obituary called Freeman "a musician's musician."
Tanouye, who performs extensively, got involved in Freeman's music when, during a big band performance, Carolyn Freeman approached him and asked him to arrange one of her late husband's compositions for big band. That led to collaboration on a CD. "Her vision for the whole project has been to bring Russ's music to the younger generation," says Tanouye. "I feel very honored to be a part of this."
The evening concert will be opened by two high school jazz groups chosen as "outstanding" from among those participating in the day-long program of master classes and clinics that precede the concert.
Participating schools include: Ashwaubenon High School, Cudahy High School, Cudahy Middle School, Denmark High School, De Pere High School, Fond du Lac High School, Gladstone (Mich.) High School, Green Bay West High School, Hortonville Middle School, Lombardi Middle School, New London High School, Peshtigo High School, Portage High School, Pulaski High School, Shawano High School, Shorewood High School, Stevens Point High School, and West Bend High School.
Tickets for Jazz Fest are $10 in advance and $12 at the door. In addition, the Weidner Center will add a $2.50 per ticket facility usage fee. The numbers for tickets are (920) 465-2217 or (800) 328-8587.

For his career, he completed 54 percent of his field goals, including shooting nearly 60 percent from the floor in 1989. Vander Plas was an 80-percent free throw shooter and averaged 9.1 points per game through four seasons. He is also tenth all-time in career steals with 110. His 50 steals in 1990 is fifth best in Phoenix history. UW-Green Bay was 80-38 during his tenure, and won its first Division I conference championship in Vander Plas's senior season, which ended in a two-point loss to national powerhouse Michigan State, in the program's first-ever Division I post-season appearance.

Donna Gunville is the third leading scorer in the history of Phoenix women's basketball and remains fourth all-time in assists and steals. Gunville played in UW-Green Bay's successful transitional years from NAIA to Division I. In her freshman and sophomore seasons, she was part of the program that gained national notoriety as an NAIA power. The 1985-86 team finished seventh in the NAIA National Tournament and the 1986-87 team upset No. 1-ranked Wayland Baptist and finished third in the country. She was named all-NAIA District 14 that year. As a junior, in the program's first year in Division I, Gunville was the team's top scorer (17 ppg.). UW-Green Bay's 22-6 record that year was best among Division I independents. Gunville again led the team in scoring (14.4 ppg.), and also assists (3.6 apg.) and steals (2.5 spg.) in her senior campaign as the Phoenix finished 19-10 and challenged for the North Star Conference title. She was named first-team all-North Star Conference. Gunville remains sixth all-time in free throw accuracy (78.7), and is tied for best free throw accuracy in a game (11-for-11 against Marquette on Jan. 28, 1988).

Tim Dunne is the most highly decorated Phoenix soccer player in recent history, and the program's only Division I All-American. He transferred into the program in 1992 and promptly helped the Phoenix to its best ever Division I mark - 16-2-1. He was named All-American, Mid-Continent Conference Player of the Year and Mid-Continent Conference Newcomer of the Year following the 1992 season. The 6-2, 195-pound defender originally from York, England, was the backbone of the Phoenix defense that allowed less than one (.81) goal per game and led the Phoenix to a 7-0 record against Mid-Continent opponents. It was the program's first at the D-I level. Dunne scored the game-winning goal against nationally ranked Furman and was the mainstay of a Phoenix team that posted 10 straight shutouts and 14 consecutive games without a loss. In his three years with the Phoenix, Dunne was a three-time All-Midwest/Great Lakes Region Selection, a three-time all-conference selection and was named the team's Most Valuable Player all three seasons, as well.

'Red Herring' benefit performances are Jan. 9 at UW-Green Bay
GREEN BAY - The University of Wisconsin-Green Bay will present special benefit performances of "Red Herring" on Monday (Jan. 9) in University Theater, located in Theater Hall on the UW-Green Bay campus.
The benefit performances at 3 p.m. and 7 p.m. will help raise funds to defray costs of touring the UW-Green Bay Theater production to the American College Theater Festival (ACTF) Region III gathering Jan. 11-14 at Illinois State University in Bloomington-Normal, Ill. The performances also will prepare the cast and crew for the festival by giving them a sense of what it's like to give performances with short turnaround time.
"Red Herring" first was performed on the UW-Green Bay campus in October 2005. The play, set in the 1950s Red Scare era in America, is described by director Laura Riddle as "a detective story, a murder mystery and three love stories all rolled into one."
This is the third invitation to tour a play to the regional ACTF gathering in five years for the UW-Green Bay Theater program. "The Christmas Schooner" got the nod in 2004, and "Aloha, Say the Pretty Girls" went in 2002. Invitations to ACTF are initiated after objective judges travel to view each play entered for consideration.
Tickets for the "Red Herring" benefit performances are $10 at the door. There are no advance ticket sales or reservations.
