WCU professor releases live-recorded jazz album

Written by 

art pavelPavel Wlosok, associate professor of jazz studies in the Western Carolina University School of Music, is releasing a jazz record of original compositions recorded live at a club in Asheville.

Wlosok recorded the eight tracks on “Jubilee Suite” at The Grey Eagle, a listening room in Asheville’s River Arts District, with well-respected, longtime jazz musicians John Riley (drums) and Mike McGuirk (acoustic bass). 

Wlosok posted a successful appeal for crowd funding for the project at www.kickstarter.com to offset some of the production costs. He has been at WCU since 2002 and is the founder and organizer of the university’s annual Jazz Fest.

The album was released Friday, Dec. 14, at the Czech Center in New York.

Shouldn’t have overindulged in the libations of Friday night, nor said the things I now regretted to my girlfriend.
