MSU Jazz Ensemble has been a part of the Morgan State
University Band Program since 1971 and Melvin N. Miles, Jr. has been the conductor
since 1973. This ensemble serves the university and the community as an
entertainment unit and as a tool for the student musicians to improve their
improvisational, composing, arranging and conducting skills in the genre of
jazz and commercial music. Many of the former members are now touring and
studio musicians. Committed to high standards, this ensemble has an excellent
reputation and maintains a very active performance schedule.
