The UNH Traditional Jazz Series presents Michael White and the New Liberty City Jazz Band on Monday, April 1 at 8pm in the Johnson Theater at the Paul Creative Arts Center.

Tickets are $8 general admission; $6 students/senior citizens and are available at the PCAC Box Office (603) 862-7222, Monday-Friday, 10 a.m.-5 p.m., online at www.unharts.com, and at the door one hour prior to performance.

Michael White is a jazz clarinetist, bandleader, composer, jazz historian, and musical educator. A staunch jazz traditionalist, White can be heard on the 1989 album The Majesty of the Blues by Wynton Marsalis, and his own 1990 album titled Crescent City Serenade. Since 1979 he has played in the Young Tuxedo Brass Band, and during the 1980s he also led a band called The New Orleans Hot Seven.

In 1981, White founded The New Liberty City Jazz Band with the express intent of preserving the musical heritage of New Orleans. The group has performed an end-of-year concert at the Village Vanguard every year since the early 1990s.

The Traditional Jazz Concert Series is co-sponsored by the New Hampshire Library of Traditional Jazz. The library, established in 1978 by Dorothy Prescott, comprises books, recordings, and memorabilia and is housed in Dimond Library. Prescott’s generous endowment funds its activities including the Traditional Jazz Series concerts.

For more information on the Traditional Jazz Series, call the UNH Music Department at (603) 862-2404.
