Amherst College Jazz Combos

The combos are small groups of musicians who are dedicated to studying the great artists of jazz and carrying on their legacy through making innovative journeys into improvisation and small group playing. This prepares the group for life after college by exposing the combo to standard charts, techniques, and theory while encouraging each to create their own sound through tune selection, arrangement and/or use of original compositions.
