And how will these students apply? By submitting a recording of three compositions, two of their own and one arrangement of — wait for it — "Don't Stop 'Til You Get Enough" by Michael Jackson. (The application process stipulates that students must arrange a song by one Indiana composer/performer of note, and Jackson is this year's pick. Keep in mind that David Baker, chairman of the Jazz Studies Dept. at Jacobs, is quite close to Quincy Jones).
The recipient will be announced in October, recording is planned for December and the record must be done by March 11, 2011. The project was organized by trombonist/composer/IU assistant professor Brent Wallarab, whose Buselli-Wallarab Jazz Orchestra is on Owl Studio's roster.
