Grand Rapids – Jazz Music Performance – Music ranges from Jazz Standards out of the American songbook, to more open jazz styles with space for improvisation and color. They are a Jazz Consort, performing both original works, and the music of other artists. Each one of them has traveled a different path in music to arrive at this point in time in performing together. Their passion is music with structure, along with improvisation, open space and new sounds. They’re also a new composition group, playing a mix of new music, along with jazz songs you may have heard. Have you listened to ECM records? – that is their favorite jazz label – and they have many musical influences.
