Trombone Heroine Makes The Uptones Proud!
Jeanne Geiger has been on a roll.
She recently joined living legend Dave Brubeck for his tour de force performance at the Masonic Auditorium in San Francisco. There’s a cool pic of this ensemble on Jeanne’s myspace page.
Our ska trombone star is as smart as she is beautiful. She’s poised to receive her Masters degree in Music Composition at Cal State East Bay. Jeanne’s Masters thesis, an innovative original big band composition called Reactance was a smash at the CSEB Jazz Ensemble’s final concert, with guest trumpet master Ingrid Jensen blazing on the lead. Check out an mp3 of this hot performance.
If that wasn’t enough, with Jeanne on the T-Bone, the Cal State East Bay Jazz Ensemble, and the CSEB Jazz Combo, both won 1st place at the prestigious Reno Jazz Festival last weekend.
Jeanne makes The Uptones truly Two-Tone. On behalf of the whole UpTones family, congrats to Jeanne, and we look forward to more jaw dropping trombone solos.
