Jazz in the LibraryThe MSD Quintet will perform and talk about influences and innovations in their music. For this special event, the first floor of McKillop Library will become a jazz café. The MSD Quintet is a contemporary jazz ensemble principally based in Newport, RI. Consisting of keyboards, sax, trumpet / flugelhorn, bass guitar and drums, they play sounds of Yellowjackets, Miles Davis, The Pat Metheny Group, Michael Brecker, Steps Ahead, John Coltrane, Herbie Hancock, and other jazz greats, as well as original compositions.

Three members of the Quintet are on the Salve Regina faculty: Peter Davis, Professional Musician in Residence and Chair of the Department of Music; Michael Johnson, an adjunct professor, teaching jazz theory, piano, and small jazz ensemble; and Doug Woolverton, also an adjunct professor, teaching trumpet performance methods. The quintet also includes D.J. Cordeiro on drums and Jon Lavieri on tenor saxophone.
