Northern Michigan University jazz combo members Cameron Mahoney and Jon Letts, along with NMU jazz program director Mark Flaherty, shared their original compositions with a much-appreciative audience in the Reynolds Recital Hall at a recent concert.
Mahoney, a graduate of Gwinn High School, wrote "We Are More than Conquerors" and "Thoughtcrime" while Letts, a graduate of Negaunee High School, wrote "Squeeze the Apple."
In the videos below from the concert, Flaherty's "Blue Right Through" features the director playing, as well as a guest performance by NMU music professor Steve Grugin on trombone.
