It has been 40 years since the NC Central University became the first university in the state – public or private – to offer the Bachelor of Music degree in Jazz Studies, initiated by jazz trumpet legend Donald Byrd. Today, the department supports 10 ensembles, in addition to offering a comprehensive vocal jazz component and the Master of Music degree in Jazz Composition and Jazz Performance. The NCCU Jazz Ensemble is the top big band of the University’s two large ensembles. The Jazz Studies Program at North Carolina Central University is under the leadership of saxophonist/flutist Dr. Ira Wiggins. (NCCU Jazz Ensemble Photo Credit: Steven Bromberg)
