Rose Harris Googe MUSC 145 Smith December 7, 2009 Required Report 2 When many people think of jazz, they often think of elevator music, or small combos playing in the background of swanky hotel lounges. This tends to stereotype jazz into a rather dull, mellow version of itself. Unfortunately, the Jim Crisp Trio’s performance at The Franklin Hotel on December 3 rd did little to sway this stereotype. While the trio was fairly animated on stage and chose quite a few pieces with a perkier beat, the overall feel was tired and lulled the audience to sleep. The highlight of the performance was certainly Jim Crisp on bass and vocals. During the band’s rendition of “Santa’s Coming to Town,” he altered the lines to add emotion and even a bit of humor to the performance. The other two performers were less entertaining, but while the show was by no means incredible, the trio was endearing and very likable. Since there were only about twelve people in the hotel lounge, the atmosphere was very personal and there was a lot of interaction between the band members and the audience. The band is comprised of the singer that also plays bass, a piano player, and a drummer. Of the three, the singer was the most prominent and was the only performer to speak to the audience, although this was largely because he was the only performer with a microphone. This personable man was the primary source of entertainment throughout the show.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    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.
