Specializing in music of the last two decades, the Eastman School of Music's New Jazz Ensemble is one of the most innovative college jazz bands anywhere. This week's concert features the world premiere of director/conductor Dave Rivello's "Re-Imagining The World," which involves the band singing as well as playing. Also on the bill are challenging compositions by prominent Eastman alums Maria Schneider and Russ Schmidt, and former Eastman band director Fred Sturm.

The Eastman New Jazz Ensemble performs Thursday, December 12, 8 p.m. at Kilbourn Hall, 26 Gibbs St., free, esm.rochester.edu.
