The Standard Vocal Jazz Ensemble Records Second Album

This summer, The Standard Vocal Jazz Ensemble finished recording their second album, entitled “Coal and Diamonds”. The students spent two weeks recording the music in our Audio Engineering facility and many precautions for COVID-19 were used to keep the students safe during the process (including wearing masks, constant sanitation of hands and audio equipment, dividers in the studio during recording, and social distancing by only having four students per day to come to campus to record). The recording will be released sometime in 2021 and the title track is a new composition written by KCKCC faculty member, Dr. Justin Binek.
