The One O'Clock Jump Jazz Ensemble enables students, who have already mastered the basics of playing an instrument, to learn the skills required to improvise performing in various jazz idioms. 

This ensemble focuses on a repertoire of jazz standards to explore concepts in ensemble playing, arranging, and improvisation.
