Primary Instrument: Band/orchestra
The SuperJazz Big Band (formerly UAB SuperJazz) was the first performing ensemble connected with the Music Department of the University of Alabama at Birmingham (UAB). The group now presents concerts four times a year at Samford University in Birmingham, Alabama, and has remained a very popular jazz orchestra in the Birmingham metro area for more than 25 years.
SuperJazz has performed with many notable jazz artists, including Ernie Watts, Lou Marini, Jr., Lew Soloff, Chuck Redd, Andy Martin and Ellis Marsalis. In 2001, UAB Entertainment Records released a recording of SuperJazz featuring Ellis Marsalis. The CD, produced by Ray Reach and Henry Panion and recorded at UAB's Alys Stephens Center for the Performing Arts, features arrangements by Founding Director Everett Lawler, trombonist Charlie Ard, saxophonist Neil McLean and pianist Ray Reach.
