The CSUN JAZZ 'A' BAND is recognized as one of the finest college jazz bands in the nation. The Band's recordings are heard on jazz radio stations around the world. The group regularly performs at major music education conventions, often fulfilling the challenging role of sight reading new music in addition to performing a concert program. Consequently, the band has the unique distinction of having won the 1st Place Award at U.C. Berkeley's prestigious Pacific Coast Collegiate Jazz Festival---11 straight times! Director Glenn Garrett received his Bachelor of Music degree in 1973 from the University of Utah and his Master of Fine Arts degree in 1975 from California State University, Northridge, Since that time he has been an active professional in the Los Angeles area as well as a part time instructor at CSUN. Mr. Garrett has played with many professional jazz bands including those of Buddy Rich, Gerald Wilson, Les Brown, Ed Shaughnessey, Toshiko Akiyoshi, Les Hooper, Bill Holman, and Buddy Childers. Currently, Mr. Garrett directs and writes for a professional big band called Feijoada Completa (black bean stew) which plays Brazillian music.
