Established in the fall of 2011, while students at the University of Northern Iowa, Commons Collective came together in a school ensemble coached by jazz educator Dr. Bob Washut, and quickly went on to become “one of the most popular young, professional jazz groups in Eastern Iowa” (The Gazette). Their performances feature an eclectic combination of original compositions, contributed by all group members, drawing upon influences from blues to rock, classical to pop music, yet firmly rooted in improvisation and the jazz tradition. Since their inception, Commons Collective has recorded and released three CDs, and a few of their performance credits include the Iowa City Jazz Festival Main Stage, Opus Concert Café, Theatre Cedar Rapids, Campbell Steele Gallery, KCCK’s Jazz Under The Stars, ARTaplooza Cedar Falls, Rozz-Tox, and the Des Moines Arts Festival.
