Organized in 2001 under the direction of award-winning performer, author and educator, Caleb Chapman, the Crescent Super Band has frequently been hailed as one of the best professional bands in the world to be comprised entirely of young musicians. With a youthful energy and nearly unbelievable performance level, the band has performed their hip, intelligent big band arrangements for thousands. While the ensemble has been featured at many of the world's most prominent music festivals, their crowning performance was a headlining debut at a packed Carnegie Hall in May of 2013, and recently they made their debut in Cuba at Havana’s “Fiesta Del Tambor”. On multiple occasions since 2007 DownBeat Magazine has recognized the Crescent Super Band with their coveted "Downbeat Award". The band has also won fourteen "Best of State" awards for Utah, including ten consecutive years as Utah’s “Best Professional Band”. In 2016 they were named national finalists for Wynton Marsalis’ prestigious Essentially Ellington competition. The band’s latest release, “Inside of the Outside”, is a joint project with GRAMMY winning saxophonist, Jeff Coffin, and features guest appearances by Branford Marsalis, Victor Wooten, Trombone Shorty, Randy Brecker, Futureman, Rashawn Ross, and Pedrito Martinez, among others.
