Kaneland students Sam Kilgore, Tucker DeBolt and Alex Speckman talk to Orbert Davis about playing the trumpet during a Kaneland Jazz Band trip to the annual Evanston Jazz Festival on Feb. 11. At the gig, they played three songs: “Sassy,” “Harlem Nocturn” and “Heliopolis.” At the end of the day, they went and saw The Chicago Jazz Philharmonic Band. The band’s leader was Orbert Davis, a renowned trumpet player in Chicago.
