Deena Othman Mus 103 Professor Bierman 11/27/17 Concert Report The jazz concert I attended was the venue Small’s Jazz Club in Greenwich Village. The Kristina Koller quintet performed, which included Kristina Koller as vocalist, Fima Chupakhin on piano, Chris Talio on bass, and Nick Brust on alto saxophone. Smalls is a very enjoyable concert venue because of how intimate and personal it is. It was a very energetic club filled with many people. The musicians were all extremely talented and each played an imperative role in their quintet. The music was extremely mellow and soft sounding, unlike other loud, fast recordings I’ve heard in class. It was a new experience for me because I never saw a live band recording that wasn’t pop.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
