Three Jazz Studies alumni playing in David Bowie musical

Three UNT Jazz Studies alumni are playing in the band for "Lazarus," the off-Broadway play based on David Bowie's music. Keyboardist Henry Hey and drummer Brian Delaney earned bachelor's of jazz studies degrees in 1992. Guitarist Chris McQueen (member of Snarky Puppy) completed his bachelor's in jazz studies in 2006. All are mentioned in this New Yorker article. Chris told me, "It's actually just about to be over, we end on Wednesday. But there will be a cast recording coming out, and it's always possible it might go to Broadway." Chris will be back on campus on Jan. 29 to do a clinic for the jazz studies guitar and bass club.--John Murphy
