May 23, 2005 Concert - Big Band Performance with Director Tom Kubis. If you've never seen jazz artist and band leader Tom Kubis in action, you are in for a treat. Tom Kubis is one of the most sought-after and prolific writers and arrangers for big bands in North America. He has his own big band in Orange County/Southern California, employing cream-of-the-crop sidemen from the area. He co-runs a big band with celebrated trumpeter/comedian and actor Jack Sheldon. He is also responsible for a major part of the library for Bill Watrous's excellent Refuge West Big Band. Kubis's career spans several decades and includes concerts and acclaimed success with numerous releases such as Keep Swingin', Tom Kubis Big Band Plays Steve Allen, Slightly Off The Ground and Jazz Musician's Christmas: The Tom Kubis Big Band. Born in 1951 in Los Angeles, California, after studying music, Kubis began playing tenor and soprano saxophones with various bands. He also played piano for Bobby Vinton. Not only has he succeeded as a musician, however, Kubis's compositions and arrangements are in great demand with big band leaders. Tom Kubis formed his own big band, attracting the attention of Jack Sheldon who became an informal co-leader of the band. Apart from writing for the band, Kubis continues to provide charts for others, including Bill Watrous, the BBC Radio Big Band, and his work is also performed by youth and college bands in the USA and UK. While his writing is always lively, entertaining and often challenging, musicians and audiences alike love the complexity of his arrangements. Kubis's own recording career has held second fiddle to other projects but his artistic talent has shaped the jazz scene and puts him on the chart as one of the greatest jazz composers, performers and conductors today.
